November is National Scholarship Month!

Help us celebrate National Scholarship Month by joining the Scholarship Scavenger Hunt – and enter to win $500!

Take a (short) break from studying and join the Scholar-Ship Scavenger Hunt! We have placed "Scholar-Ships" in more than 30 student services offices and academic departments around campus that award or can assist with applying for scholarships. Watch our social media (Facebook and Instagram) all month long for location hints by following us at @wwuscholarshipcenter.

Print out a Scholar-Ship Card on our website or pick one up in the Scholarship Center. Visit the campus offices and departments that have Scholar-Ships on display in order to find out more about the scholarship opportunities or support that they provide. Get your card stamped or write down the location and number of the Scholar-Ship at 5 different offices or departments. Once you've found at least 5 Scholar-Ships you can turn in your card to the Scholarship Center to be entered into a drawing for a $500 scholarship for winter quarter!

Official Rules:

  • Only one entry per student.
  • Eligible entries must come from WWU students who are enrolled fall quarter.
  • Get your card stamped and/or enter the number and location of at least 5 Scholar-Ships and submit your Scholar-Ship card to the WWU Scholarship Center by 4pm on December 2nd to be entered to win a $500 scholarship.
