Scholarships & Fellowships

The College of Arts and Sciences is dedicated to our student’s success. Through generous donations from our alumni, their families, and other friends of WSU, the College of Arts and Sciences proudly offers more than 250 undergraduate and graduate scholarships in addition to over 150 graduate fellowships to help our students achieve their goals and reach their potential.

CAS offers financial support to students at all stages of their education by offering merit- and need-based funds, and research and travel funds, in addition to other types of support that include unique learning opportunities and experiences.

For the 2019–2020 academic year, CAS awarded more than $1 million in scholarships and fellowships to our undergraduate and graduate students.

Apply for Scholarships

Complete the WSU General Scholarship Application as early as August each year to be automatically considered for all scholarships in the College and over 700 additional scholarships at the University level.

Financial Aid Implications

Scholarship and fellowship funds are incorporated into the total amount of financial aid for each student’s financial aid package. To avoid complications, funds must be processed before financial aid is disbursed to a student’s account or other aid (typically loans) will be reduced to adjust for any amount that exceeds the cost of attendance.
