Transfer Scholarship Guide
In addition to the scholarships listed above, a majority of transfer institutions offer transfer scholarships. The Transfer Scholarship Guide for Lurleen B. Wallace Community College was created to assist transfer students in identifying and obtaining scholarships at four- year institutions. The information in the guide came from the four-year institutions websites and is subject to change. If a school is not listed in the guide, contact the Admissions or Financial Aid Office at that school directly to ask about transfer scholarships.
