The WoMen’s and Adult Reentry Center strives to help as many students as possible. Hence, a student may receive only one award per academic semester: Fall, spring, summer. (This does not apply to the YWCA and ASI Scholarships). Our intention is to make the best possible match of scholarship for our students. Accordingly, if you are selected for more than one scholarship, we will match you with the scholarship with the higher value.
