Entry into the WI Covenant Program has been discontinued with the high school class that graduates in 2015. Any student who has been confirmed as a WI Covenant Scholar will continue to receive the grant for up to 4 years (8 semesters) of college. The grant may be used at any of our state’s four higher education sectors: University of Wisconsin System, Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the Wisconsin Technical College System, or Wisconsin Tribal Colleges. That means if a student starts their college career at a technical college and transfers to a 4-year campus, the Wisconsin Covenant Scholars Grant (WCSG) follows them.
The grants, in conjunction with all the other state and federal financial aid, will be based on your family’s income and financial need. Your estimated family’s contribution (EFC) will be established when you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form in your student’s senior year.
To continue to receive the grant, you must fill out the FAFSA every year and must meet acceptable academic standards prescribed by the student's institution. If you are transferring schools, simply be sure to have the school you will be transferring to as a school on your FAFSA and they will be notified of your eligibility.
