Graduate Student Scholarships

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.


Graduate students can submit ONE online scholarship application to apply for multiple donor-based scholarships funded through the Wright State University Foundation and also scholarships funded by the University. The system will automatically match students with any scholarships for which they are eligible. Final awards will be determined by various scholarship committees.  For more details on possible scholarship opportunities, use the scholarship search to see what you may qualify for.

The 2020-2021 Wright State University Online Scholarship Application deadline is February 1, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Once you have submitted your application you will NOT be able to access it to make changes. However, you will be able to monitor the return of your Recommendation Form and make changes to your reference after the application has been submitted. You will log back into your scholarship application via WINGS Express. Once in your application, click on the "blue button" titled Recommendations.

Scholarship award decisions begin in the spring and continue throughout the summer. If a scholarship has been posted to a student’s award notice, the student will receive the general Financial Aid Award notification email via their Wright State University email account. The Award Notice is available in WINGS Express.
