Oakton Wentcher Scholars who have completed at least 48 hours with at least a 3.0+ GPA are invited to apply for the Wentcher Transfer Scholarship to continue their studies at a four-year university. Transfer Scholars receive up to $10,000 per year to attend an accredited, not-for-profit college or university of their choice within the United States. With successful participation, the scholarship can be extended for a second year, totaling up to $20,000 of undergraduate support.

Candidates apply through the Oakton Office of Student Financial Assistance. Criteria for selection are academic merit, character, and financial need. An application, Oakton transcript, two letters of recommendation, and an essay are required. Applicants must be current Oakton Wentcher Scholars and meet the eligibility requirements for federal financial aid (US citizens, permanent legal residents, and other eligible non-citizens).
