Department of Sociology Undergraduate Scholarships & Awards

The Department of Sociology offers scholarships and awards to eligible undergraduate sociology students from all campuses. Each scholarship and award reflects the interests and desires of its donor.

Washington State University undergraduates are also encouraged to apply for university-wide scholarships by completing the university scholarship application before January 31st for the following academic year. Completing this application enables students to be considered for an additional set of scholarships and awards through the university. Students are encouraged to complete a new scholarship application every year, since student eligibility and the availability of actual awards and scholarships changes annually.

Award Announcement Procedure

Unless otherwise stated, the awards committee will review all applications and select winning applicants. Award winners will be notified by the department chair and recognized at the department’s annual spring awards ceremony in April.


To apply to the Department of Sociology awards, please use the general CAS Scholarship Application Form. The deadline to apply is January 31st at 11:59 pm PDT.
