Student Employment


Wright State University's undergraduate scholarship program is committed to recognizing students who have demonstrated excellent academic ability, involvement in extracurricular activities, and creative talent. First-year student undergraduate scholarships are awarded in three categories: academic performance, competitive honors, and talent. Other first-year student scholarships are awarded through colleges and miscellaneous departments. Scholarships range from $500 to $17,000 a year, and most are renewable for four years. For scholarship details and applications, visit Wright State's Financial Aid Web site at http://www.wright.edu/finaid/.  Click on “Types of Aid” for scholarship links.

First-Year Student Academic Performance Scholarships
Academic Performance Scholarships are awarded to National Merit finalists, semifinalists, and commended scholars; National Achievement finalists, semifinalists, and outstanding participants; valedictorians and salutatorians; and on the basis of ACT/SAT scores, class rank, and high school GPA. Students must apply for admission to Wright State by February 15 to be reviewed for Academic Performance Scholarship eligibility.

First-Year Student Competitive Honors Scholarships
Competitive Honors Scholarships are awarded through a scholarship application process. Students who apply are selected based on their ACT/SAT scores, class rank, high school GPA, PSEO transcript if applicable, letters of recommendation, essay, extracurricular activities, and oftentimes an interview. Students must apply for admission to Wright State and complete the scholarship application requirements by the deadline date of January 15.

Talent Scholarships
Talent Scholarships are awarded through an application and audition or portfolio process to students who demonstrate outstanding talent in theatre, dance, music and art. For specific scholarship information, please contact the department in your area of study.

Other First-Year Scholarships

Scholarships for Continuing Undergraduate Students
Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to academically talented students who complete the Wright State Academic Scholarship Application for Continuing Undergraduate Students. Continuing students must have earned hours and a "competitive" cumulative GPA, both earned at Wright State. The University Scholarship Committee, college and department scholarship committees are comprised of faculty and staff members and make these award decisions. Scholarships range from $300 to $11,000 and are usually one-year awards. Applications are available in January each year through Wright State's Financial Aid Web site or through the Office of Financial Aid. The deadline to apply is March 1. If a scholarship is need-based, the student must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15.
