Foundation Scholarships for Transfer Students

The Western Illinois University Foundation offers scholarships specifically for incoming transfer students. These scholarships are based on individual criteria set forth by our scholarship donors. Criteria for each highly competitive scholarship varies based on a variety of factors, including transfer Grade Point Average, all hours transferred, community service/volunteer activities, and possibly financial need.

Accepted students should login to the WIU Scholarship Portal and complete the General Application. This application will automatically consider you for most new transfer scholarships and recommend others that require additional questions be answered. Deadlines include:
