Thanks to an extraordinary level of support from alumni and friends of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences, the College and its departments are able to offer CAHNRS Cougs the following:
- Roughly $700,000 in total awards to hundreds of students annually
- A distinctively consistent level of assistance through all four years of enrollment
- The prestigious Dean’s Merit Scholarship, awarded to ten students each year
Students gain access to all CAHNRS and departmental scholarships via the WSU online scholarship application. Filling out this one application allows each student to be considered for thousands of scholarships at university, college, and departmental levels. There are hundreds of scholarships available within CAHNRS with values ranging from $100 to $4,000. Students must file this application every year that they are enrolled at WSU. The due date is January 31.
CAHNRS is devoted to ensuring that its students maintain a comfortable financial situation throughout all four years of college so they can excel in academics and explore the limitless opportunities that CAHNRS and WSU have to offer. We do our best to make up the difference when freshman or 2-year scholarships expire.
Dean’s Merit Awards
The Dean’s Merit Award is for incoming freshmen with a minimum GPA of 3.8 or class ranking in the top 10% of their graduating class. Finalists for this award are interviewed, and the top ten individuals receive the award.
