"Scholarships allow for the possibility of me pursuing an education at WSU. It is because of scholarships that I will become the first of 29 grandchildren to become an engineer overall, but a civil engineer most importantly."

Cesar '23 - Civil Engineering


"Before MESI I didn’t know when to take breaks and wasn’t in tune with my needs. MESI has taught me the skills to cope with stress from classes and my sport’s career playing rugby, and will help in my career as a veterinarian.”

Maya '24 - Zoology


"Wanted to say a very, very big thank you to the Honors College for funding my journey to the 2021 Interstellar Research Group Symposium. I can't even begin to describe the lifechanging experience it ended up being - the friends and colleagues I was able to meet as well as reconnect with at this event is something I'll carry and cherish moving forward in my career."

Colin '21 - Mechanical Engineering
