Even if your grades aren’t perfect, apply. Academic performance is important, but it isn’t the only thing that matters. Academic interests, talent, financial need, community service, leadership, career ambitions, campus involvement—any of these could qualify you for scholarship awards from WSU or from outside sources. Awards can range from several hundred dollars to full coverage of tuition and expenses. In most circumstances, you can receive more than one scholarship at the same time. There’s nothing to lose…and a lot to gain. So get yourself ready and apply.
