Honors Scholarships

Requirements for a WSU Honors Scholarship

The WSU Honors College has a finite amount of scholarship award money to distribute. Some scholarships are based on merit while others are based on financial need; in addition, many have specific criteria, such as the requirement that the funds be used for study- or research-abroad or to pursue a specific major.

  • Each of our scholarship awards require that you be a current WSU Honors College student in good standing.
  • Incoming freshman for the fall of 2017 need not apply through this application. Freshman awards are granted through a different process.
  • If you are applying for scholarships based on financial need, please be aware that we base our determination of need on WSU’s determination of need which is driven by the FAFSA (see
  • Information about general WSU scholarships can also be found on the Student Financial Services website (see
