Continuing the Vision: A Scholarship Campaign for Student Success 

In 2013, NWF State College celebrated 50 years of service to not only our students, but also our community. Together, we are presented with a special opportunity to continue the college's mission of "improving lives" for students in a meaningful and lasting way.

As you are probably aware, rising tuition costs are outpacing inflation. As state and federal funding wanes, the cost of higher education continues to rise. While NWF State College offers one of the more affordable programs in the state, our students are not immune to the onerous costs of higher education. Working together, we can increase the level of scholarship aid available to NWF State College students to encourage student success.

Continuing the Vision: A Scholarship Campaign for Student Success seeks to raise $1 million for student scholarships at NWF State College. These scholarship funds will profoundly impact the lives of Northwest Florida State College students and positively impact the community by reducing the financial stress and burden of our students and maintaining the socioeconomic diversity of the student body.

Please consider an unrestricted gift to our scholarship fund to help our students. The Scholarship Campaign for Student Success will provide scholarship funding for First Generation in College students; military students, and new degree programs, like Management & Supervision, Early Childhood Education, Pre-Engineering, and many more!

The Campaign for Student Success builds upon the College's past 50 years of service and achievement to ensure educational opportunities are available well into the next century. Join us in this effort to make a NWF State College education possible for current and future generations by donating today!
