Nebraska Wesleyan University added Western Nebraska Community College in Scottsbluff as its newest partner in the Pathways Scholarship Program.

Nebraska Wesleyan University Vice President for Enrollment Management Bill Motzer and Western Nebraska Community College Executive Vice President of Educational & Student Services Grant Wilson have signed a formal agreement for the program.

The Pathways Scholarship Program partners NWU with community colleges in an effort to open more doors to bachelor’s degree completion.

The program provides pathways to degree completion at Nebraska Wesleyan with financial benefits, including a $20,000 scholarship to every admitted WNCC student to NWU’s traditional undergraduate program. 

Students transferring directly from WNCC and who complete a minimum of 12 credit hours at WNCC are eligible for consideration of admission and the Pathways Scholarship. The scholarship is renewable for up to six semesters at NWU. 

This marks the sixth such partnership between NWU and Nebraska community colleges. Other colleges in the partnership include Central Community College, Iowa Western Community College, Metropolitan Community College, Mid-Plains Community College, and Southeast Community College.
