WWU Scholarship Timeline


Western Washington University awards more than $2,000,000 in institutional scholarships each year. Students are awarded scholarships on the basis of academic merit, talent, extracurricular activities, multicultural experience, leadership and, in some cases, financial need.

WWU scholarships follow this timeline (in general):

February-April:

Application materials are available at the office of the appropriate department.

March-May:

Application deadlines vary according to each individual scholarship, but most will occur during these months.

May-July:

Students are notified of the results of their scholarship applications.


All scholarships are considered part of a student's financial aid package and may require an adjustment to the aid offer. Funds will be credited toward current bills on the student's account prior to disbursement of funds.
