The application for Endowed and Leadership Scholarships will be made available in January and is due March 1 of each year. Any funds awarded will be available for use during the following fall and spring semesters.
Endowed scholarships are made possible by individual donations. These scholarships are presented at Awards Day which is held in the spring of each year. Applications are available the month of January and February of each year in the financial aid office on the Wesson Campus, the office of admissions on the Natchez Campus, and at the Simpson County Center.
For academic scholarships, students must maintain at least 15 hours and a 3.0 term GPA. Scholarships may be stacked; however, students will not receive any combination of financial aid valued over the cost of attendance for Co-Lin as determined for Federal student aid ($10,230 per academic year). Scholarships are based on ACT composite scores.
