WSU scholarships and awards

The WSU General Scholarship Application, due May 1, lets you apply for many scholarships systemwide at once, including more than 100 scholarships for WSU Vancouver students only. 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.
