Scholarships are available not only from WSU, but also from private donors and foundations. There are literally thousands of them! Use the form below to find awards you can apply for. The more awards you apply for, the better.

All fields are optional.

General Scholarship Application

The WSU General Scholarship Application now closed for 2024-2025 academic year.

By applying for the WSU General Scholarship Application, you may become eligible for multiple scholarship opportunities. Even if your grades aren’t perfect, apply. Academic performance is important, but it isn’t the only thing that matters. Academic interests, talent, financial need, community service, leadership, career ambitions, campus involvement—any of these could qualify you for scholarship awards from WSU or from outside sources.

Awards can range from several hundred dollars to full coverage of tuition and expenses. In most circumstances, you can receive more than one scholarship at the same time. There’s nothing to lose…and a lot to gain. So get yourself ready and apply!

Scholarships for everyone

WSU offers 700+ scholarship programs; a single scholarship application allows you to be considered for all of them. We offer scholarships for every type of student:

The FAFSA is essential

WSU will use the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to determine eligibility for scholarships that take financial need into consideration. You’ll need to complete the FAFSA every year!


Undocumented Students

WSU has financial aid for you!

Undocumented students should complete the Washington Application for Student Financial Aid (WASFA) every year to be considered for state aid and WSU funding. You can also apply for WSU scholarships.

While it’s true the majority of scholarship awards are made in the spring for the upcoming academic year, scholarships are awarded year-round for the fall and spring terms.

The WSU General Scholarship Application becomes available in the fall (usually September) and is due January 31st. Complete this application every year to make sure you’re considered for all the available awards.

Deadlines for non-WSU scholarships vary widely, and new awards can be created at any time. Check our scholarship database frequently to make sure you don’t miss any opportunities.


You could also be eligible for awards based on the WSU location you’re attending.
