PennWest University’s Office of Financial Aid is rolling out a new one-stop process for current and incoming students to apply for scholarships awarded by the university and individual campuses for 2023-2024.

After completing the PennWest General Scholarship Application, students will be considered for every scholarship that is available to them at their PennWest campus.

The scholarship application runs until 11:59 p.m., March 31, 2023. Many scholarships require the 2023-2024 FAFSA completion. For instructions, visit

Students may access the scholarship application through the MyPennWest portal, with individual log-in credentials for the PennWest account.

If students have not activated their MyPennWest credentials, they must visit the Initial Email Setup page for steps and activation.

From there, students click on the “Apply for Scholarships” title card, “My Applications” link, then “Start Application.”

Once students follow the prompt and submit the application, Financial Aid will automatically consider them for any scholarships for which they are qualified.

More instructions can be found here.

Scholarship committees will begin meeting in April, and further information for the faculty and staff on the new application and how to review candidates will be emailed in March.

Scholarship awards will not be finalized until late May.

If you have questions, please email for more information.
