Raider Open House


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.

    Over 78 percent of our new students who attended Wright State University in 2019–20 received some type of gift aid. More than half of these students received aid from the institution. Along with providing gift aid to help provide a more affordable education, Wright State has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state for four-year universities. Add in the tuition guarantee program, and there is nothing stopping you from being Right Here. Right Now. Wright State. Apply today!

    Remember, a component of receiving gift aid is filing your FAFSA. This is something that you need to do on an annual basis beginning October 1 of each year.
