Inspiring Tenacity Scholarships

Student finances

Wondering how you’ll pay for college? We’ll help you find a way. Every year WSU awards approximately $207 million in scholarships and financial aid to more than 17,000 students. We encourage all students to apply for scholarships. Grades, talent, financial need, leadership, ambition — any one of these could qualify you for one of several hundred different award programs at WSU.

Make sure to complete the WSU general scholarship application and FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) along with your admission application by January 31. Completing both will ensure you’re in the running for more than 700 available scholarships.

I chose WSU for the Honors College, the sense of community, and the academic scholarships I received—which were really useful as an out-of-state student! I appreciated the emphasis on undergraduate students getting their hands dirty and doing research.
