Raider Open House

Scholarships

A quality, affordable education from Wright State opens the door to endless possibilities. Our robust scholarship opportunities, quality academic programs, and low tuition rate make pursuing your degree at Wright State a smart investment in your future.

Last year, more than 78 percent of new students received a Wright State scholarship. A scholarship is a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid. It is often merit-based or restricted to a select population of students. 

To maximize your scholarship and financial aid eligibility, you should file the FAFSA annually. Typically, the FAFSA opens on October 1 of every year. The 2023-24 and 2024-25 FAFSA forms are currently available. The launch of the 2024–25 FAFSA was delayed but is now available periodically as part of the Department of Education's soft launch. During the soft launch, the FAFSA form will be available for short periods of time while they monitor site performance and form functionality. If you need assistance completing your FAFSA, RaiderConnect is here to help. Contact us at RaiderConnect@wright.edu or 937-775-4000.
