Gaston College and Gardner-Webb University announce the Bulldog Way program which grants scholarship support for transfer students
Gaston College and Gardner-Webb University have announced a partnership through which Gaston College students can get scholarship support to attend the university. The Bulldog Way program will offer a $3,000 yearly grant to any Gaston College student who gains admission to the traditional, residential programs at GWU, which is located in Boiling Springs, N.C. This program is stackable with other transfer scholarships available to Gaston College students. The partnership was announced at a Signing ceremony on Wednesday, November 5.
This program expands the strong partnership between Gaston College and Gardner-Webb. In November 2019, they entered into a co-admission transfer agreement called Bulldog Bound that allows currently enrolled Gaston College students to participate in a seamless direct-entry pathway to GWU. Students who wish to participate in Bulldog Bound must satisfy GWU admission and transfer degree requirements.
“We continue to seek avenues to provide and improve quality opportunities for all students, and partnerships like this with Gaston College offer added value and benefit for students of both institutions,” said Gardner-Webb President Dr. William Downs.
Gaston College has recently updated transfer pathways programs that ease students’ transition from the College to GWU, among other four-year institutions. Gaston College students who have earned their A.A.S. two-year degrees in Accounting, Elementary Education, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Human Services, or Nursing can easily transfer to Gardner-Webb University to complete their four-year degrees.
“Our strong partnership with Gardner-Webb University continues to grow,” said Dr. Dewey Dellinger, Vice President of Academic Affairs for Gaston College. “The Bulldog Way program offers our students even more excellent opportunities to continue their education at GWU. I would like to personally thank Gardner-Webb for including Gaston College in this grant.”
