Western Washington University

Website: http://www.wwu.edu

Western Washington University offers the focus on students and the faculty access of a smaller college and the academic choice, resources, diversity, and room to grow of a large university.

Western recently developed a new model for WUE scholarships that actually exceeds the typical 150% of in-state tuition represented below. At Western the WUE is an $8,000 scholarship and is awarded based on a student’s academic achievements.For students from WUE states, this significant tuition discount allows access to strong academic quality, and a beautifully unique location at a great cost, making Western a best value as a liberal arts based research institution.

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) scholarship recipients may major in any main-campus academic program at WWU.
