Weber State University (WSU) Scholarships

WSU provides more than $90 million in financial aid and scholarships each year.
Scholarships may be awarded based on academic achievement, financial need, leadership or other criteria.

Beginning October 1, students will be able to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  This will allow you to know much earlier your financial aid award for the next school year.  Also, students selected for verification wil have an easier time verifying income because you can use tax information that was submitted from the prior year.  Students can accelerate the application process by using the Data Retrieval Tool.  This tool retrieves tax information for the IRS database and reduces the amount of verification required.  The benefits for applying early and using the Data Retieval Tool are: a) finding out earlier what aid is available; b) ensuring that the aid will be received before the semester begins; c) helping qualify for other need-based WSU scholarships; d) being in the best position to receive more need-based institutional grant funds.  Visit the WSU Financial Aid & Scholarships page for further information and for all necessary guidelines, etc.
