Good Neighbor Scholarship

Earn an Associate of Arts Degree in a unique learning environment!  Apply-Now-button.jpg

We offer a two-year scholarship for students interested in obtaining an AA Degree in Theology and Mission, Intercultural Studies or Interdisciplinary Studies

The scholarship covers the entire cost of tuition, books and college fees. We do ask that you apply for federal financial aid but no loans are required for scholarship recipients. 

DWC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. An AA degree from DWC can be used to transfer to other four-year colleges or universities after graduation.

You will have the opportunity to study in a multicultural environment and develop the skills needed to collaborate effectively in today’s global society.

Unique Learning Environment

While the primary goal of DWC is to educate young men interested in becoming a Divine Word Missionary priest or brother, the college welcomes students who have a variety of academic aspirations. Currently, our student body includes women religious, diocesan priests and seminarians.
