Scholarships & Aid Programs for Non-Utah Residents

The following scholarships and financial aid programs are available for non-resident students in need of tuition assistance at Weber State University beginning fall semester 2017.

Note: These awards do not apply to international students. Contact the International Student and Scholar Center for scholarship opportunities.

WSU Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded based on merit and need. Available for new freshmen, transfer students and continuing students, scholarships are awarded based on criteria such as:

  • Academic performance
  • Activities or interests
  • Community service
  • Financial need
  • Academic departments

Unlike student loans, scholarships do not need to be repaid. Depending on the award, they may or may not be renewable. 

Applying for Scholarships

Students entering Weber State after high school graduation are automatically considered for academic scholarships based on their admissions application. Students interested in need-based and activity-based scholarships must apply for those separately. Students entering college more than one year after high school graduation are not automatically considered for academic scholarships and must apply annually. These students are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

To apply for non-academic scholarships, complete the Financial Aid & Scholarship Application in the eWeber portal.
(Note: Make sure you are applying for the appropriate aid year.)

The application is available beginning September 1 each year. Students who apply early will receive first consideration.

All scholarship applicants are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available beginning October 1 at fafsa.ed.gov.

Additional application steps may be required depending on individual scholarships.
