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

Students need to notify the University of any private scholarships that they 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.
