Graduate Scholarships

At Winthrop University, we believe higher education should not be a privilege reserved only for those who can afford it. We are committed to helping Winthrop students find appropriate ways to finance their education.

To be considered for any of the scholarships, a student must be in good academic-standing and meet any minimum GPA requirements that the deed of gift may specify. Applicants for Winthrop Graduate Scholarships should demonstrate ability or promise of academic excellence.
