How to Apply

The Office of Financial Aid offers an online scholarship application process. By submitting one application, first-year students, continuing, and transfer students can apply for multiple donor-based scholarships funded through the Wright State University Foundation and also scholarships funded by the university. This scholarship application spans university-wide for undergraduate and graduate students. For more details on possible scholarship opportunities, use the new scholarship search to see what you may qualify for.

Indigenous students and those of Asian descent can apply for the above scholarships through this WSU-wide scholarship application form, which opens in the fall semester and is typically due in early February each year. Applications will be reviewed following the university deadline. In the review process, preference is given to undergraduate students in good academic standing with demonstrated financial need; they should be actively involved with the ANA Center and/or one or more of the student organizations representing these students populations on campus. The essay and the recommendation portions of the standard application must both be completed.
