    Milepost One Scholarship Application 22-23

    Warren Wilson will award up to 25 full-tuition Milepost One scholarships to students with total family income levels equal to or below $125,000 per year. This means that even families who may not be eligible for federal or state need-based grants still have an opportunity to earn a full tuition scholarship – this includes eligibility for international and DACA students. You can view the scholarship requirements before submitting. 

    Please complete the required fields below, upload your essay, and then submit your scholarship application. The deadline for submission is February 1, 2023. Scholarship applications will not be considered until the following requirements are met:

    • A complete application for admission to Warren Wilson College is on file. You can apply here.
    • Domestic students must also file and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered. Find more information here.
    • International students must have paid the $50 admission application processing fee before an application is considered complete. The fee can be paid in the Warren Wilson College admission student portal after submitting the Common Application.

    We will notify students of the status of their scholarship application by March 15, 2023.
