Wright State University offers several scholarship opportunities to graduate students, including:

  • Graduate assistantships
  • Tuition scholarships
  • Fellowships
  • Stipends

Often these awards require the student to serve in an employment-like capacity for the awarding department or college in order to be eligible and maintain eligibility.

Terms and conditions for graduate assistantships, tuition scholarships, fellowships and stipends can be obtained from the Graduate School's Policies and Procedures Manual.

Graduate students are encouraged to contact the chair of their program of study for information about graduate assistantships, scholarships, fellowships and stipends.

Online Wright State Scholarship Application

Graduate students can submit ONE online scholarship application to apply for multiple scholarships. Applicants are considered for each scholarship based on the eligibility criteria listed in the descriptions. To see what you may qualify for, use the scholarship search. Scholarships range from $300 up to the value of tuition. The 2021-22 Wright State University online scholarship application will open later this fall. Please stay tuned for more details.
