All Opportunities

Welcome to Wayne State University’s Scholarship Opportunities Homepage!

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students through the Office of Student Financial Aid and the College of Education. These scholarships are awarded each year through an extensive selection and review process. We “match” you to some of these scholarships based on criteria you already meet without requiring any application to be completed. However, for those scholarships that do require additional information, you must first sign in with your WSU AccessID and password. You will then have the opportunity to complete a general application and, if applicable, apply for specific scholarships through other departments.

This application process does not include consideration for merit or other need-based awards that are given upon admission to Wayne State University. The Application process to the University itself, as well as FAFSA completion, will determine merit/need-based scholarship eligibility.

The deadline for all private scholarship applications was March 1 including all additional documents and reference letters that may be requested. Please keep in mind that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to be received by Wayne State prior to March 1 for any opportunity that requires the student demonstrate “financial need”.

Need-based financial aid may be adjusted if you subsequently receive additional aid (scholarships, grants or loans). Private scholarship awards may reduce other WSU scholarships, grants, loan eligibility or other aid.

Download our Frequently Asked Questions for detailed information on how to use this system.

If you have any questions, please email scholarships@wayne.edu, call the Financial Aid office at 313-577-2100 or visit the Student Service Center in The Welcome Center.
