The Southwestern Scholarship is available to all graduate level students who apply and meet the qualifications. Priority will be given to full-time students with an established 2.5 GPA and proof of employment. (The GPA and employment requirements are waived for new students.) New students apply for Southwestern Scholarships as part of their application for admission, and current students must apply annually during the Spring semester for the following academic year. The application for current students is open March 1 - July 1, but incoming students may apply anytime.
