Western Washington University has included in its design for excellence the need to diversify its student body, faculty, and staff. The Multicultural Achievement Program (MAP) Scholarship is an important component of the university's effort to diversify its student body. New WWU Students do not need to complete this application; MAP Scholarship consideration for incoming freshman and transfer students is processed via the admissions applications.
Applicants must demonstrate solid academic abilities, strong leadership qualities and a commitment to multicultural issues and activities in school or the community. Financial need will be assessed. Applicants must:
- be a full-time (12 credit hours per quarter) undergraduate student at WWU during prior academic year (foreign study, off-campus, and other non-state supported programs are not eligible).
- be enrolled at WWU for at least one quarter prior to application deadline and possess a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.3.
Priority consideration is given to applicants who file a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), demonstrating financial need.
