Wheeling University is the only Catholic institution of higher education in West Virginia. Are you a Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston graduate considering WU for your post-secondary studies?
The Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston offers a scholarship for Catholic students who attend Wheeling University. Applicants must be parishioners of a parish in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston in order to be eligible for a scholarship and pastor’s signature is required to verify parish membership.
Each applicant must file a FAFSA Form (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) with the U.S. Department of Education. A copy of the results will be forwarded to Wheeling University.
Your Diocesan scholarship application must be postmarked no later than April 15 annually. However, applications will be accepted after this deadline for late entry students.
