Wheelock College Scholarships and Grants
Wheelock College is offering scholarships and grants to incoming first-year students for the fall of 2013. If you are accepted and meet the criteria below, you will receive a scholarship from Wheelock.
Wheelock is committed to partnering with families to make a private education affordable and any first year student that does not qualify for a scholarship is eligible to receive a $12,000 Fenway Grant. Students from outside of Massachusetts will also receive a $2,000 travel grant.
Please note that eligibility for scholarships is based on the grades and SAT scores that we have on file at the time the admissions decision is made. Grade point averages are all recalcuated on a 4.0 scale.

Scholarship recipients will be notified when they receive their acceptance packet.
Wheelock College offers merit scholarships of $9,000 to $12,500 to transfer students* who have a cumulative college GPA of 3.0 or higher. To be considered for the scholarship, completed applications need to be submitted by the June 1 deadline—there is no separate application for merit scholarships. Please note that eligibility is based on the grades and transcripts we have on file at the time your admissions decision is made.
|Scholarship||College G.P.A.||Scholarship Amount|
|Dean's Scholarship||3.5 or higher||$12,500|
|Dean's Scholarship||3.2 - 3.49||$11,000|
|Dean's Scholarship||3.0 - 3.19||$9,000|
The merit scholarship is renewable while you pursue your Bachelor's degree at Wheelock, provided you maintain a 2.0 GPA and continuous full-time enrollment. Scholarship recipients are notified when they receive their acceptance letter.
*Please note that although transfer merit scholarships are not available to international students per the chart above, accepted international transfers may be eligible for other merit aid. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for more information.
Returning students are guaranteed to receive the same amount of merit award money that they did their first year at Wheelock as long as they maintain the minimum standards for the award.
