Scholarships can help you pay for college

This year, the Vancouver campus awarded more than $2 million in scholarship and tuition waiver awards to more than 600 students. You might qualify for some of these funds based on your academic record and grades, financial need, group affiliation or a combination of the three. If you qualify, some scholarships are automatically awarded when you are offered admission to WSU Vancouver.

Washington State University Vancouver students can apply for both university-wide scholarships administered through the Pullman campus and Vancouver-specific scholarships administered through the Vancouver campus.

“I was under the impression that only students who are brilliant get scholarships. But faculty and staff at WSU Vancouver kept encouraging me to apply because I had a variety of other strengths that are as valid as academic performance. I wish I had known that earlier.”

—Cesar Moreno, anthropology major
