First-year undergraduate scholarships
Fort Lewis College awards scholarships during admissions to help undergraduate students finance their college education. You can receive scholarships based on academic merit through your major and many other avenues.
Admitted first-year students, including those earning a GED, are automatically considered for merit-based tuition scholarships. These scholarships are based on a student’s cumulative GPA and are renewable for four years. You do not need to complete a separate application.
You can also receive a Merit Scholarship through the New Mexico Reciprocal Scholarship or the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Scholarship. Merit scholarships cannot be combined.
The WUE scholarship is awarded to students from WUE states who have at least a 3.0 cumulative high school GPA. It reduces out-of-state tuition to 150% of the in-state tuition rate. For the 2023-24 academic year, the WUE scholarship is valued at $7,348, reducing out-of-state tuition to $11,340. The WUE scholarship is available to first-year students and is renewable for four years. It cannot be combined with other merit tuition scholarships.
WUE states include AK, AZ, CA, HI, ID, MT, ND, NM, NV, OR, SD, UT, WA, WY, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
*Students who have taken their GED and earned a 165 or higher in all four subjects will be eligible to earn the WUE scholarship.
New Mexico residents with a minimum cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or who have taken their GED and earned a 165 or higher in all four subjects are automatically awarded the New Mexico Reciprocal Scholarship, which lowers out-of-state tuition to the in-state rate. The NMR Scholarship is renewable for four years and cannot be combined with other merit tuition scholarships.
For the 2023-24 academic year, the NMR is valued at $11,128 per year.
Students must be admitted to FLC by January 1, 2024, to be considered. After January 1, 2024, students can still be considered for the Presidential or Provost Scholarship or WUE.
