We have a long tradition of working individually with the families of our students to customize a financial aid award that ensures cost does not stand in the way of a Washington University in St. Louis education. About 60 percent of undergraduates receive financial assistance. A typical financial assistance award may include a combination of scholarships, federal grants, student loans and part-time employment.
For financial assistance information, see Financial Assistance for International Students at admissions.wustl.edu, or call (314) 935-6000 or (800) 638-0700 (within the United States).
Through the Engineering Academic Fellowship Program, the School of Engineering & Applied Science offers Alexander S. Langsdorf full tuition fellowships to entering freshmen with exceptional promise. These awards are based solely on merit. Awards are for four years of undergraduate study, provided the recipient maintains a satisfactory academic record.
In addition to being able to apply for the Langsdorf Fellowship Program, applicants to the School of Engineering & Applied Science are eligible to apply for a James M. McKelvey Undergraduate Research Scholar award to support working with a faculty member on a research project.
Other Academic Scholarships
Students may apply for the John B. Ervin Scholars Program and be considered for the Enterprise Holdings Scholars Program, as well as apply for the Annika Rodriguez Scholars Program - all of which enhance the overall quality and diversity of the student body. Engineering students may also apply for the Summer Scholars Program in Biology and Biomedical Research. Engineering applicants with an entrepreneurial spirit and vision may apply for the Entrepreneurial Scholars Program, a renewable annual scholarship of $3,000.
Washington University in St. Louis encourages and gives full consideration to all applicants for admission, financial aid and employment. The University does not discriminate in access to, or treatment or employment in, its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, gender identity or expression, veteran status or disability. Present Department of Defense policy governing all ROTC programs discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation; such discrimination is inconsistent with Washington University in St. Louis policy. Inquiries about compliance should be addressed to the University's Vice Chancellor for Human Resources, Washington University, Campus Box 1184, One Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO 63130-4899.
