The Cougar Academic Award, Washington State University's name for the WUE Award, is our way of recognizing incoming freshmen with exceptional academic ability. This award is offered to top incoming freshmen at $11,000 per academic year - even more than the standard Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) rate. Because at WSU they are one and the same, students will not receive both a CAA and a WUE award.  To see if you are eligible, visit www.caacalculator.wsu.edu.  This award may be renewed for up to three years.
