Welcome to scholarship season! Fall and winter is the time of year that scholarship applications are opening all over the US for the next school year. If you have a perspective or current EWU student in your life that plans to attend EWU for the 2023-2024 school year, this information is for you. What’s great about our scholarship application is that students are only competing for scholarships against other EWU students. Often with a national scholarship, students compete with thousands of other students from all over the country.

The 2023-2024 EWU Scholarship Application opened on November 1, 2022 and will close on February 1, 2023. This is a hard deadline so mark your calendars.
