The Fort Lewis College Foundation Scholarship application opens each year on December 1. Awarding typically begins in April, and recipients are notified between April and June. Deadline for all scholarships is February 15 unless otherwise noted in the criteria.

If you receive a scholarship offer for a Foundation scholarship, you will receive an email from foundscholarships@fortlewis.edu to your official Fort Lewis College email address.

You must respond to this email and upload your thank you letter as soon as possible. Failure to respond may lead to your award cancellation.  If you were not selected for a Foundation Scholarship, consider applying again for the next academic year by the deadline.

Foundation and Departmental Scholarships, including Alumni Scholarships and the Civic Match Scholarship are sourced from private donors and provide financial assistance to our students. The Fort Lewis College Foundation offers hundreds of these privately funded scholarships each year.
