Champions in the classroom, competition, and life. 

Scholarships are the lifeblood of Northwest College Athletics and the Athletic Department's single largest annual expense.

Athletic Scholarships are essential to the success of student athletes at Northwest College. They also make up a significant portion of the NWC Athletics operating budget. With decreases in state funding, raising scholarship money for student athletes is more important than ever.

The “Trapper Champions” Endowed Scholarship campaign aims to develop an ongoing revenue stream for athletic scholarships so coaches can be confident in having resources to maintain competitive programs.

  • Impact team quality and competitiveness — NWC’s average scholarship amount for Men’s teams ranks 6th among Wyoming community colleges, with Women’s teams ranking 4th. Scholarship funding positively correlates to winning. Our goal is to improve these rankings and increase scholarship dollars for our athletes.

  • Create opportunity for STUDENT athletes — The dream of playing college sports is a powerful motivator for students, many of whom are the first from their family to attend college. Above their passion for the sport, Trapper student athletes earn scholarships to attend NWC and earn a degree. Access to education opens additional doors for student athletes allowing them to become successful in life as well as on the playing field.

It’s time to Build Champions and provide scholarships and financial resources necessary for NWC student athletes to excel both athletically and academically. Together, we can preserve the tradition and spirit of Trapper Athletics and help build student champions! Learn more about athletics scholarships.
