The WSU General Scholarship Application deadline for the 2016-2017 school year is January 31st, 2016. WSU offers over 700 scholarships and most scholarship committees use the General Scholarship Application to select recipients. On the application students will need to complete six short-answer essays. Applications must be submitted by the deadline in order for students to be eligible for WSU scholarships. Please encourage your son or daughter to complete the General Scholarship Application if they have not done so already.
Additionally, we also encourage students to research and apply for as many applicable outside scholarships as possible. The WSU Student Financial Services website offers resources to aid in your search, and we also suggest contacting your local High School College & Career Center as well as local non-profit organizations or community groups. There are also many online search engines that provide scholarship opportunities. Your student should never pay to submit a scholarship application.
