The Lotus Scholarships (the Scholarship) is awarded to students who achieve high academic standards and demonstrate a financial need in order to attend University of the West (UWest). The Scholarship was established in 2012 and has so far been awarded to more than 150 students. UWest is home of the Lotus Scholarship – are you the next Lotus Scholarships award recipient?
For the 2016-2017 academic year, UWest has set aside funds to continue providing the Lotus Scholarships for new students entering the university, as well as for students seeking to renew their scholarships. New applicants must meet the scholarship eligibility requirements and matriculate into UWest in the 2016-2017 academic year (see last page for students beginning Spring 2016). Returning applicants must meet the Lotus Scholarship criteria in order to qualify for a renewal.
