Due to the generosity of alumni and friends, the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences
awards over 500 scholarships per year, totaling more than one million dollars.
The Eberly College Scholarship Committee matches an applicant’s academic performance, major and rank, geographic location, and extracurricular activities with the eligibility requirements of all available scholarships awarded by the College. The applicant's financial need is also taken into consideration as a majority of Eberly College scholarships have a financial need restriction.
To be considered for need-based 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
Incoming freshmen admitted to an Eberly College major and who wish to be considered for scholarship support for the 2019-2020 academic year should submit an Eberly College Freshman Scholarship Application between December 1 and March 31. Freshman applicants will be notified in April if selected for a scholarship for the upcoming academic year. The application will be posted in December.
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 financialaid.wvu.edu.
