Each undergraduate division at Washington University provides a number of four-year scholarships that range up to the full cost of tuition. The Sam Fox School offers the James W. Fitzgibbon Scholarships in Architecture and the Conway/Proetz Scholarships in Art to students who demonstrate outstanding academic performance and promise in their respective fields.
No separate application is required for these scholarships, although you must submit a digital portfolio of your work to be considered.
Students may apply to the University’s signature merit-based scholars programs. Housed within the Office of Scholars Programs (OSP), the scholarship programs bring together students from each of the academic divisions to create unique academic and cultural communities in which to share, learn, challenge, make friends, and exchange views and ideas about what is possible in a global environment.
Students may apply to any or all of the following programs through individual applications available on the WashU Pathway after submitting an application for admission.
Each year, the WashU Women’s Society sponsors a small number of two-year, full-tuition scholarships for students transferring from the St. Louis Community College system. Elizabeth Gray Danforth Scholars will also receive an Ida H. Early Start-up Grant, which provides a one-time grant up to $2,000 for indirect educational expenses such as housing supplies, books, etc., to assist with their transition as a first-year student at Washington University.
Full eligibility criteria are available on the Elizabeth Gray Danforth Scholarship page.
