Carson College of Business Getting Started

Getting Started

The Carson College offers many scholarships. Be sure to apply.

The Carson College of Business awarded its students over $800,000 during the 2019-2020 academic year. College scholarships typically range from $500 to $5,000 per recipient per year, and students are eligible to receive more than one scholarship. Scholarships are awarded according to specific qualifications outlined by the donors during creation. Qualifications may include your hometown, major, grade point average, and/or need, as well as class standing.

Outside scholarships

Scholarship support from outside WSU (individual donors, foundations, corporations or other government agencies) are also available. Searching these sources is highly encouraged. For an overview of places to look for outside support OR links to additional information, please go to the financial aid scholarships page and click the green “Go” button to browse scholarships. Additionally, any outside scholarships brought to the attention of the Carson College of Business will be displayed on the screens in the Carson Student Center for Success with websites, deadlines, and applications noted when available.

The Washington State University Alumni Association also has scholarships available for students. You can review AA Scholarships here.

Award timelines

The awarding process for the 2023 – 2024 academic year begins after the January 31, 2023 application deadline. The Carson College of Business will notify the students that are selected to receive CCB general scholarships by the Friday of Spring Break (March 17, 2023) via email. For departmental scholarship awards, the awarding process continues throughout the academic year and notification dates vary.

Effect on financial aid

Scholarship monies are considered a part of the total amount of financial aid. If additional financial resources arrive after your aid has been disbursed, other aid (typically loans) will be reduced to adjust for any amount that exceeds your Cost of Attendance.

Give to the Carson College Scholarship Fund

Your support of the Carson College of Business Scholarship Fund opens doors for talented students. It enables powerful learning experiences that transform careers.
