Western State Colorado University awards scholarships based on a number of considerations such as academic excellence, financial need, field of study, school activities, leadership, community service and exceptional artistic or athletic talent.
Several scholarship programs utilize the Common Scholarship Application. Please see the "Application" heading under each scholarship listing to determine if the Common Scholarship Application form may be used.
Completed scholarship application packets consist of the Common Scholarship Application form, an essay indicating why you are a good candidate for scholarship awards, and a list of scholarships for which you are applying. For each scholarship listed, you should include a short paragraph addressing how you meet criteria specific to that scholarship.
Deadline to submit completed application packets is April 1, 2013.
Through generous donations to the university from our alumni and friends, the following departments offer additional resources to current and - in special cases - incoming Western students.
Please check with the specific departments for information on the application process for these awards.
