College of Arts & Sciences Scholarships by Department

Western Illinois University's College of Arts and Sciences and its departments offer 140+ scholarships to help our students meet their financial needs. Our merit-based scholarships are awarded by meeting or exceeding certain standards set by the scholarship-giver. They also might be based on academic achievement or on a combination of academics and community service. Some of the listed scholarships are based on financial need. 

Please read the criteria for each scholarship carefully and if you have questions, please contact the department offering the scholarship. You may also contact WIU's Scholarship Office for university-wide scholarship opportunities.
