Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) | Students

Land your tuition discount! Important tips for students & parents:

  1. Are you a resident of a WICHE member state or U.S. Territory (CNMI or Guam)? Are you planning to study at a public college or university in another WICHE state?
     
  2. Select from 160+ WUE network schools.  Download a PDF list, or check the WUE Savings Finder for each school’s details.
     
  3. Do the schools on your list offer your chosen area of study? Verify! Most majors are eligible for the WUE tuition discount at most universities and colleges, but not always. Selected schools may exclude high-demand majors from WUE rate eligibility.
     
  4. Do you meet your top-choice schools’ WUE admissions criteria? Your residency alone doesn’t guarantee you the WUE discount. Many colleges and universities have additional criteria such as ACT/SAT test scores or high school GPA. Some schools use WUE as a merit award and set more rigorous criteria for WUE applicants.
     
  5. Apply directly to the schools. WICHE doesn’t process applications (there is no general WUE application); WICHE does not participate in the student-selection process. When you apply, indicate you want to be considered for the WUE discount. Usually the admissions office handles WUE requests, but at some schools you work with their scholarship or financial aid office.
     
  6. Apply early. Many schools have an early application deadline for WUE applicants; check your choice schools’ WUE webpages for the most current deadlines. If you apply after your school has reached its quota of discounted WUE seats, you could miss out!
     
  7. Be informed. Read our comprehensive WUE FAQ and see how much you could save with WUE (updated every December). NOTE: The WUE discount (150% of resident tuition or less) only applies to the tuition. Fees are typically standard for residents and nonresidents; they must be paid in addition to tuition.
     
  8. Got WUE? Congratulations! If you’ve been admitted and awarded the WUE rate, keep all correspondence confirming your WUE award. To keep your WUE discount for the duration of your studies, study hard and remain in good academic standing. Some schools require a minimum number of credit hours per term. Be sure to confirm all requirements directly with your WUE school. IMPORTANT: Students cannot count time enrolled through WUE toward building in-state residency.

Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship

A $1,000 Scholarship For Those Affected By Auto Accidents

The Dirk Derrick Car & Truck Accident Injury Scholarship is an award for any current or soon-to-be undergrad in the United States who has had his or her life altered due to an injury from a car or truck accident, be it their own injury, that of a loved one, or an influential individual. The Dirk Derrick Scholarship has a brief submission process, and applicants will be judged on their ability to convey the lasting effect an auto accident has had on their life as well as their journey to overcome those challenges.

Students applying must submit an essay where you explain, present, inspire, or otherwise convince us as to why you deserve to win this scholarship.There are no conditions or requirements for this essay. Please keep submissions to 5 paragraphs and 600 words at the absolute maximum. This is not a standardized test. While spelling, punctuation, and general cohesiveness will make your essay easier to read, and therefore judge, you are not being graded. The winning submission will be one which clearly conveys a non-fictional story of your life before and after an auto accident.

Auto accidents can be life changing. At The Derrick Law Firm, we believe in keeping the public safe by bringing first hand experience to those who haven’t had it, as well as easing the stress of accident victims as they enter one of the most important phases of their lives.

Application deadline is December 15 or each year.

Please follow this link to the Dirk Derick Law Firm website to apply for this scholarship.

EAA 105 Youth Flight Scholarship Program

Scholarship Program Information (Updated: June 2019)

Application Status:  Open – Currently Accepting Applications

Each year EAA Chapter 105 awards a number of youth flight training scholarships, which are intended to assist young people in the Oregon/Southwest Washington area in their pursuit of learning to fly and advancing their aviation skills. The number of available scholarships varies from year to year. Applicants may submit their applications at any time, and the selection committee periodically considers applications as appropriate, given the available funds and program status. That said, while scholarships may be applied for at any time, the selection process may also include periodic announcements soliciting applications with a specific time window and with a defined deadline for applications, in order to be considered for a consolidated selection “drive.” In other words, applicants are encouraged to apply at any time, but should also stay aware of the scholarship program’s selection efforts and any scheduled activities throughout the year. This web page is the definitive source of program information.

The scholarships, which are administered by EAA Chapter 105 in Hillsboro, Oregon and co-funded by the Chapter, private donors and the Bogardus Trust, are highly sought-after and we consistently have more applicants than available scholarships. A set of formal eligibility criteria determine who may apply and a selection team determines to whom scholarships are awarded.

TO APPLY:  The young person who is applying for the scholarship is expected to complete their own application process, documentation, requests for recommendation letters, etc. on their own. We won’t accept applications prepared by someone else (parents included) on behalf of the young person for whom the scholarship is desired. Flight training is an individual commitment, which requires initiative, organization and drive. The young person should prepare and submit an application packet as described below. You may submit your application electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Eligibility:

  • To be eligible to apply for a powered aircraft flight training scholarship, the applicant must be between the ages of 15 and 24 years old at the time of application.
  • To be eligible to apply for a non-powered (glider/sailplane) aircraft flight training scholarship, the applicant must be between the ages of 13 and 24 years at the time of application.
  • Both first-time applicants and prior scholarship recipients are eligible to apply.
  • This is a local-area slight scholarship program, serving youth in Oregon and southwest Washington.
  • Applicants who are selected for an interview as part of the process will be required to interview in-person in Hillsboro, Oregon.
  • Recipients of scholarships from this program will be expected to participate and interact with the local aviation community via EAA Chapter 105 events and activities.
