WSU Private Scholarships

Wayne State University is pleased to announce the implementation of a new interactive scholarship application, AcademicWorks.

WSU AcademicWorks - Private Scholarship Application 

The 2022-23 Private Scholarship Application will be open in October 2021 until March 1, 2022.

Students interested in applying for WSU's private scholarships via AcademicWorks, please visit and log in using your AccessID and password. When an application is submitted, students will receive an email confirmation. With hundreds of scholarships available, WSU encourages students to apply before the March 1 deadline.

The application process

Any required supplemental material(s) must be submitted by March 1, 2022 for private award consideration.

When determining award recipients, students who complete a scholarship profile will be reviewed first.

The number of qualified applicants for scholarships is far greater than the available funding. Not all qualified applicants will receive scholarships. The decisions of the scholarship committee are final.

Complete the FAFSA

Some of the awards are need-based, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your FAFSA must be successfully on file by March 1, 2022 with the WSU school code 002329 to be considered for those awards. 

Other aid

Need-based financial aid may be adjusted if you subsequently receive additional aid (scholarships, grants or loans). Private scholarship awards may reduce other WSU scholarships, grants, loan eligibility or other aid.
