"A good education is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else."—Mahtab Narsimhan

Help change the life of a Wright State student through your gift to funds supporting our scholarship initiatives. The following categories outline the university's scholarship priorities and cover a broad spectrum of our students' needs:

  • Opportunity and Access Scholarships—The dream of a college education should be a reality for anyone who wants to achieve it. Wright State is committed to providing opportunities to all students, regardless of their level of income. Our Opportunity and Access Scholarships support students with the greatest financial need. Many of these students are the first in their families to earn a college degree.
  • Advantage Scholarships—Designed to help Wright State attract and retain the best and brightest students from across Ohio, the nation, and the world, Advantage Scholarships are awarded to Wright State's highest achieving students. They recognize academic excellence and talent in all fields, from world-class research to the visual and performing arts.
  • Real World Scholarships—In today's competitive job market, employers are looking for well-rounded graduates with a wealth of experiences inside and outside of the classroom. Our Real World Scholarships give students the opportunity to participate in experiential learning through internships, co-ops, study abroad programs, and community service while they are completing their degrees.
