Your educational needs and aspirations are at the forefront of everything we do in Honors. We firmly believe in our power to transform the lives of our students, and that they in turn will transform our common future.
Many students in Honors receive some type of scholarship – either university-supported or privately funded. Scholarships are important because they help us recruit and retain the best and brightest students, which enriches the reservoir of talent in Honors and raises the bar for academic excellence.
Students admitted for Fall 2015 who have received an offer of a Presidential, Distinguished or Gold scholarship, will also have an invitation to attend a Scholars Day event where they will have an opportunity to be considered for Honors College membership.
To see the full range of merit scholarships available to qualified Wayne State University freshmen, please visit the Freshmen Scholarship page for full details and current scholarship values.
Honors students are also invited to apply for Honors Private Scholarships. Honors students are notified by email when the application process begins, usually in March for scholarships applied to the following fall semester.
- Honors College Private Scholarships: These grants are awarded by the Honors College Scholarship Committee.
- WSU Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships: This office provides access to scholarship assistance for all students.
Wayne State offers a number of scholarships to meritorious students. If students are offered more than one of these scholarships, they will have to choose the one that fits them best, as they can only receive funding from one of these awards.
