Dependents of Wesleyan Ministers who are appointed as full-time, active licensed or ordained Wesleyan ministers may be awarded up to 50 percent of tuition. Dependents who qualify for the Presidential Scholarship will be awarded whichever amount is greater. Out-of-state Wesleyan minister dependents who qualify for the $11,000 Presidential Scholarship may receive an additional $3,000 SWU Grant.
Southern Wesleyan honors the sacrificial work of our Wesleyan ministers. Our goal is to provide as much assistance as possible to those dependents whose families are already making a significant contribution to Wesleyan higher education. Making Southern Wesleyan a best-buy for this important group of students is a high priority. They often become our best athletes, our most committed learners, and most active student life advocates. SWU appreciates the impact dependents of Wesleyan pastors make on our university community!
