All Opportunities

Welcome to Western Illinois University’s Scholarship Opportunities Homepage!

Western Illinois University proudly supports students’ academic achievements through our scholarship opportunities. These opportunities are made possible through generous financial support from our alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff, who believe a high-quality education should be accessible to deserving students without imposing excessive financial burden. Their commitment to education and dedication to our students enables us to award nearly $2 million in scholarship assistance every year.

We are grateful to our scholarship donors, who make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students and enhance the quality of a WIU education. We invite all students to explore the various scholarship opportunities available. Your dreams are within reach, thanks to those who believe in you.
