The Men & Women of Excellence Scholars Program (MWE) is a student support program designed to implement proven methods from research to assist students with student success. Through a robust management information system, high emphasis on full-time student enrollment, coaching sessions, and financial incentives, MWE is geared toward connecting students with various school resources to ensure retention and graduation.

To be eligible for the program, you must:

  • Have a high school diploma or GED;
  • Be able to complete your degree in three years or less;
  • Have accumulated 24 or fewer college-level credits (be a freshman);
  • Enroll in at least 12 credits per fall and spring semesters;
  • Complete your 2022/23 FAFSA or HESAA application and qualify as a low-income student;
  • Apply to EOF (acceptance into EOF is not a requirement);
  • Must meet/engage with your MWE student support specialist (advisor) at least 2x/month.

Communication, engagement, and perseverance are key tenets to success. Let’s make it happen for you!

MWE is an equal opportunity grant-funded program. This program does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, or any other protected class under the law.
