Scholarships

There are many ways to put a WSU education within your financial reach

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.

Scholarships can be an important part of paying for a college education

Last year, the Vancouver campus awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarship and tuition waiver awards to upwards of 300 students. The average award was $3,500. In the 2011/2012 academic year, $256,000 in scholarships was awarded. 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 through admissions award programs.
