Reporting Expected Outside Scholarship Funds

The Whitworth University Financial Aid Office requests that all expected outside scholarships be reported to our office by phone, email or through this easy online form. We will include these scholarships in your financial aid offer. This information is also used by the student accounts office to recognize outside scholarships as a resource toward your costs and to reduce the amount you owe the university.
