Wright State expands scholarships


Since 2006 Dayton CW’s Scholarship program has made the dream of college a reality for many high school graduates.

Now Wright State University is investing $3 million in a new, expanded scholarship program designed to make a college education more affordable and attract and retain high-achieving and academically successful students.

“What we’re doing this year is were going to expand the program to make it more available to more students from Ohio,” explained Wright State President David R. Hopkins.

The new program broadens the requirements of existing scholarships, making more students eligible.

“This is Wright State’s way of helping deserving students who may find the pursuit of a college degree financially challenging,” said Wright State President David R. Hopkins. “We want to open the doors to a college education as widely as possible. Our Academic Performance Scholarship program, which features the new Wright Promise Scholarship and the new Raider Excellence Scholarship, is a perfect way to do that.”
