Western Ohio Educational Foundation and Wright State University Donor Scholarships

The Western Ohio Educational Foundation (WOEF) has been committed to the success of the Wright State University–Lake Campus and its students for over 50 years and demonstrates this commitment through scholarship offerings totaling over $200,000 annually. WOEF scholarships are available for undergraduate students coming from high school, and new, current, returning, and transfer students who plan to attend the Wright State University–Lake Campus and enroll for the minimum required credit hours.

The Wright State University Foundation donor-based scholarships and the WOEF have the same online application. By completing this online application, you are applying for both scholarship programs. One of the 500 donor-based scholarships supported through the Wright State University Foundation is the Alumni Network Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded exclusively to students at the Lake Campus and ranges in value from $500 to $1,000. The Lake Campus Alumni Network scholarship is made possible by charitable contributions from Lake Campus alumni and civic leaders who understand the importance of higher education and believe in the first-rate education the Lake Campus provides to all students.

  2. Make a list of all extracurricular activities, volunteer experience, community service, memberships, awards, honors, and other noteworthy items.
     
  3. Complete the required essay. The essay will set you apart from the other applicants. Take your time, edit, review, and edit again! Write your essay in Word, then copy and paste it into the application. The essay should: explain your educational goals, professional goals, career aspirations, and commitment to community service, and inform the reader of the ways in which a scholarship award will make a difference in your personal and financial circumstances.  The minimum length for the essay is 300 words; essays cannot exceed a length of 600 words.

  5. Recommendation Forms (letters of recommendation) are not required for ALL scholarships but are suggested to help set you apart from other applicants. Recommendations are REQUIRED for students who want to be considered for an honors scholarship. Select a previous or current teacher or counselor who can provide information about your unique qualities and/or exceptional academic abilities. Contact your intended reference prior to listing him/her. Be sure to collect their email address since they will receive a request by email to complete your online recommendation form from notify@ngwebsolutions.com, not from a Wright State University email address. Forms are due by March 8, 2024, by 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (EST)
