Campus Visit Travel Grant
We know that the best possible way to learn whether Whitworth is a good college fit for you is to visit campus. We also know that travel isn't cheap and some families may need financial assistance to make a campus visit possible. We have funds available to provide travel grants for students traveling more than 350 miles to campus who meet all of the following criteria:
- Are admitted to enroll as a first-year or transfer student for the coming fall/spring
- Are committed to registering for a campus visit at Whitworth
- Would not be able to visit campus without financial assistance
- Have already filed the FAFSA/WASFA (not required for international students)
Eligible students who meet all of these criteria are invited to complete our online campus visit travel grant form. Travel grant applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis and will be awarded to help cover travel expenses for eligible students as long as funding is available. Applicants will be notified within one week about whether their grant is approved.
In order to support as many students as possible with the limited funds available, standard travel grant amounts are intended to cover about half of the cost of a student’s flight to Spokane. Students can request additional funds, if necessary, through the travel grant application form.
