Scholarships

Due to the generosity of alumni and friends, the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences awards over 300 scholarships per year, totaling more than $700,000. 

The Eberly College Scholarship Committee matches an applicant’s academic performance, financial need, major and demographic information with the eligibility requirements of all available scholarships awarded by the College. The majority of Eberly College scholarships have a financial need restriction. 

To be considered for scholarships, a student must have a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the Office of Financial Aid. To complete a FAFSA, visit fafsa.ed.gov

Incoming freshmen  

Incoming freshmen admitted to an Eberly College major and who wish to be considered for scholarship support for the 2017-2018 academic year should submit an Eberly College Freshman Scholarship Application by February 1, 2017. Freshman applicants will be notified in March if selected for a scholarship for the upcoming academic year.

Freshman Scholarship Application

Incoming freshmen, regardless of major, are automatically considered for one of the University’s merit-based scholarships when they submit their application for admission to WVU. To determine your eligibility for merit-based scholarships, visit undergradscholarships.wvu.edu.

Current and transfer students  

Currently enrolled Eberly College majors and incoming transfer students who wish to be considered for scholarship support for the 2017-18 academic year should submit an Eberly College Undergraduate Scholarship Application by March 15, 2017. Applicants will be notified in May if selected for a scholarship for the upcoming academic year. 

Undergraduate Scholarship Application

Additionally, currently enrolled students should contact the department of their major to inquire about scholarships that might be available at the department level.
