Scholarships and financial aid
A variety of state, federal, and university-sponsored programs are available to help students with educational costs.
For all students at WSU
Washington State University awards millions of dollars in financial aid and scholarships to students every year based on financial need, academic merit, or a combination of the two.
To get all the financial help WSU can provide, you'll need to do these two things:
- Complete the University's general scholarship application so you can be eligible for scholarship consideration, including departmental awards.
- Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) so WSU can consider you for aid (scholarships, grants, loans, etc.) based on financial need. Get started here.
For honors students
In addition to university-wide scholarships, the Honors College offers scholarships to cover housing, tuition, and study and research opportunities. Students are also eligible for National Distinguished Scholarships. The Honors College partners with the Distinguished Scholarships program to help students identify which awards fit with their academic areas and career aspirations.
