Scholarships

Providing a quality educational experience for its students is a WKU tradition. The University is engaged in a strong competition with its peer institutions to recruit the nation’s top scholars. WKU is committed to providing endowed funds for competitive student scholarships, fellowships, and awards in order to recognize the academic achievements of its best and brightest applicants. Since the cost of an education is rising, and the cost may quickly become out of reach for many students, needs-based scholarships and awards must also be made available to deserving students.
