The College of Agricultural, Human, & Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS) awards approximately $600,000 in scholarships annually to students pursuing CAHNRS majors. Students apply for these scholarships by filling out the general WSU scholarship application found on the WSU Future Students website: scholarships. To be considered for CAHNRS scholarships, be sure to indicate the CAHNRS major in which you are interested on the application.

Washington State 4-H is pleased to offer 15 different scholarships. Current and former Washington State 4-H members are eligible to apply. Applicants must have accumulated at least two years of 4-H affiliation. Previous Washington State 4-H scholarship recipients are not eligible to apply.
There are two different sets of requirements for the scholarships; one for the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences and the other for general 4-H Scholarships. Much of the information is repeated in different ways on each (unfortunately, this is necessary because we are working with different systems). You may apply for the 4-H CAHNRS, 4-H general, and Dairy scholarships but you may only receive one award.
