WINGS Scholarship

To be considered for the 2017-2018 WINGS scholarship, students must apply through the NINER SCHOLARS PORTAL, the university's online scholarship application system.  The deadline to complete your application is April 1, 2017 at 11:59pm.

Women Initiating and Nurturing Growth through Scholarships, or WINGS, is a program sponsored by Women Executives for Community Service (WECS)  The program supports students attending Charlotte area universities with preference given to female students. Please visit the WINGS website at for details of eligibility criteria and expectations of WINGS scholars.

WINGS Scholars are awarded $4,000 annually, if they are full-time students. Awards are prorated per hours taken.  The scholarship may be renewed if the recipient continues to meet the eligibility requirements.  Recipients of the WINGS Scholarship also receive something potentially even more valuable!  A seasoned, female executive will be paired with each WINGS Scholar to provide one-to-one mentoring and professional guidance. Each mentor is a member of Women Executives (WE), and gives their own experience, perspectives, counsel, networks, and personal support—what they give is themselves.
