Foundation Scholarships for Transfer Students

Western Illinois University Foundation offers scholarships to incoming transfer students. These scholarships are based on individual criteria set forth by the scholarship donor. Criteria for each highly competitive scholarship varies based on transfer GPA, semester hours earned, and community service/volunteer activities.

New transfer students need to complete the Scholarship Application for New Transfer Students to be considered for most Foundation transfer scholarships at Western Illinois University. By submitting a completed scholarship application by May 1, you are automatically considered for most WIU transfer scholarship for which you qualify. After May 1, the applications are submitted to the WIU Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee for review. Award announcements are sent to students in the spring via postal mail.

Deadline date: May 1

Although the WIU Scholarship Office shares your application with your major department for their scholarships, we encourage you to contact the department of your declared major to inquire about department scholarships that may require additional application.
