Endowments & Scholarships

Endowments & Scholarships

For the past several years, Potomac State College of WVU has made awards to worthy students from nearly 75 endowed scholarships.

However, as the College increases its enrollment, more students, many of whom are first-generation college-goers, will be seeking financial assistance.

You can help through a generous donation to any existing Potomac State Scholarship, or you may create your own scholarship fund for a gift of $25,000 or more (one-time; over five years; using cash, stocks, corporate bonds, or mutual funds; or through your estate plan).
