WHARTON, TEXAS – Wharton County Junior College is offering a Fall 2021 First-Time in College Scholarship to all first time in college students who have enrolled for the Fall 2021 semester and are taking six or more credit hours. First time in college students taking six to 11 credit hours will receive a $500 scholarship and students taking 12 or more credit hours will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
