Scholarship and Fellowship Offers

Per Washington State University policy, all email scholarship communication must be conducted using your official WSU email address.

Offer letters from the College of Arts and Sciences and its academic units will be emailed to recipients beginning in mid-March and continuing through early summer.

Students who are not selected will not receive notification.

Accepting an Offer

Recipients must officially accept or decline all scholarship or fellowship offers by the date indicated in their offer letter, which will be sent to their WSU email address.

If you experience extenuating circumstances that prevent you from meeting the deadline, please contact the CAS scholarship coordinator as soon as possible.
