“Being a Coug is this beautiful bond that brings us all together.”
With scholarship support from people like you, Honors College students become LEADERS in the classroom, laboratories, and local and global communities. For many students, scholarships provide access to a college education and enable them to maximize their full potential beyond the classroom walls.
But don’t take our word for it…read what our scholarship recipients have to say!
My involvement in the Honors College at WSU began in the first semester of my first year, with the First-Year Leadership Program, and has steadily continued since then. I completed the Second-Year Leadership Program as well and am now a student facilitator for the Honors First-Year Experience class for the third fall semester in a row. I am involved in the development of the Honors College and Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine Pathway Program, and with the support of the Honors College, conducted research at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine this past summer. Overall, from the connections I have made with faculty, staff, and other students, being a part of the Honors College has been a life-changing experience.

It might be cliché, but being a Coug is this beautiful bond that brings us all together. It's being a part of the phenomenal community and having genuine care for each another. College is often an intimidating step in peoples’ lives, whether that means being on your own for the first time, being the first person in your family to attend college, or traveling thousands of miles away from your home. Washington State makes that transition as seamless as possible. And once you’re a part of this family, you’re a member for life. I’ve received the renowned “Go Cougs!” greeting from all over the world.
I wish I could express how much it means to me, more than the few simple words of “Thank you.” It is people like you who make university possible, and it’s truly a philanthropic act of kindness. I thank you immeasurably. When I am older, I will definitely do the same and give back.

Please support #CougsGive today and show our students that their Coug family stands beside them as they pursue their interests and create their futures!
UPDATE: Let’s make this a #CougsGive tradition! For the second year in a row, Dean Grant Norton and his team in Honors will pass out 129 ice cream grabbers from Ferdinand's to students during Dead Week when we reach 129 gifts in celebration of WSU’s anniversary!
