About the scholarship
Every student who is registered for and attends the Out-of-State Experience event will receive a $1,000 scholarship for completion of the program. Students must be admitted to attend, and space is limited.
In order to qualify for this scholarship, students must attend and participate in all components of the program from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Events offered on Friday, Sunday, and Saturday evening after 5 p.m. are optional.
The Out-of-State Experience event is exclusively for admitted students who are not Washington residents.
Students may only attend one admitted student event. National Merit Scholarship awardees and students who will have other allowable tuition waivers or payments that cover the value of full tuition are not eligible to receive the Out-of-State Experience WSU award.
How the scholarships are awarded
Student Financial Services will post the award to the student’s account approximately three weeks after the event and will send an email communication confirming the award has been posted.
If you do not see that your award has posted after three weeks, please contact the Visitation Programs office to confirm they have record of your attendance and they will follow up with Student Financial Services to ensure your award is posted.
If you can’t attend
If you can’t attend the Out-of-State Experience event, you can sign up for one of our other Experience WSU events, which also offer scholarships and are open to residents and non-residents.
If you can’t attend an Experience event, you won’t be eligible for the scholarship — but that’s not the end of the story. There are many other scholarship opportunities at WSU!
Fill out the WSU general scholarship application by January 31 to be considered for 700+ scholarships from WSU.
There are also many other opportunities to visit campus throughout the year. See our student visits site for more information.
