The Western Undergraduate Exchange Scholarship

Priority Deadline: December 31

The Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship is a highly competitive, academic, merit-based scholarship. The scholarship committee will automatically evaluate students from WUE States for the WUE Scholarship based on the application for admission. Academic success is the primary factor in awarding of the WUE Scholarship. To be eligible for the WUE Scholarship students must apply for and be admitted to the University of Montana.

The awarding of WUE will be determined based on the academic information provided on the application for undergraduate admission only. Student’s academic major will not have any effect in the awarding process. Priority will be given to applications postmarked by December 31. Students who apply after December 31 will be reviewed on a competitive basis. The WUE Scholarship amount represents 150 percent of Montana resident tuition and fees rather than the full nonresident tuition and fees.

Apply early! We strive to provide awards to qualified applicants, however, resources are limited.

Eligible applicants must be first time incoming students to the University of Montana (freshman or transfer) from: WUE Map
