All Opportunities

Welcome to Western Illinois University’s online scholarship system!

The 2018-19 application period will open OCTOBER 15, 2017 for our 2018-19 new freshmen, new transfer, and select current student scholarships. At that time, applicants may log in with their WIU ECOM username and password to complete our General Application and, if applicable, answer supplemental questions for additional scholarship consideration.

If you have questions regarding the WIU Scholarship Portal, please refer to our Online Application Instructions & FAQs.

  • Automatch Scholarships: Once you complete your General Application, you will automatically be considered for these scholarships – no further action is required. Consideration does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship. Students will not be able to view which scholarships they are automatically being considered for.
  • Recommended Scholarships: Once you complete your General Application, additional scholarships will be recommended to you that require additional information. To view these scholarships, select “Recommended” under “Opportunities.” Student must complete the additional action(s) needed to be considered for Recommended Scholarships.
  • All Scholarships: This is a list of all scholarship opportunities within the WIU Scholarship Portal, not just scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” in the far right column (as no additional action is needed) – see Automatch above. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to submit that specific scholarship application for consideration. Students may search these scholarships by selecting the “Show Filters” button above.

LISTED AWARD AMOUNTS ARE ESTIMATED AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE
