Each scholarship or fellowship has a slightly different application procedure. All require each candidate to submit an application for freshman admission to WUSTL.

Students who apply under Washington University’s binding early decision plan may apply for any scholarship matching their academic and extracurricular achievements. Academic scholarships, however, are not awarded until after the early decision commitment date.

Scholarship Application Details

Scholarships at WUSTL are both school-specific and university-wide. You may apply to both types of scholarships.

  • If you have already submitted the Common Application, you may submit the Application for Academic Scholarships and Fellowships online when you log in to the WUSTL Pathway. If you prefer, you may submit the Application for Academic Scholarships and Fellowships by mail.
  • You may apply for only one full-tuition scholarship within a school at WUSTL. For example, there are four full-tuition scholarships in the College of Arts & Sciences; you may apply for only one.
  • You may not apply to school-specific scholarships in more than one school.
  • You may also apply for several university-wide scholarships.
