Receiving Scholarships

You’ve been awarded a scholarship - congratulations! Here’s the fastest way to get your scholarship money into your WWU student account:

Step 1: Notify the University

You will need to notify the University of any private scholarships that you will be receiving. In order to fulfill this requirement, please submit this form. You may also mail a copy of your notification letter(s) to:

Western Washington University
Scholarship Center
516 High Street, Old Main 285
Bellingham, WA 98225-9007


Step 2: Contact Your Donor

We ask that private donors mail their checks to::

Western Washington University
University Cashier
516 High Street, Old Main 110
Bellingham, WA 98225-9004

Scholarship checks should be made payable to Western Washington University and include the student’s name and Western ID in the memo.


If a donor requests verification of your enrollment at Western, our office can provide a Proof of Enrollment letter after you have registered for classes. If your donor requests information regarding your financial aid award, our office can provide a Financial Needs Analysis upon request.
