WSU Tri-Cities emphasizes the polytechnic learning while doing approach to educating students while focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. The campus currently serves more than 1,600 students which allows for a private school feel at a public school price. Because of the campus’s location next to world-renowned engineering firms, federal agencies and the Pacific National Northwest Laboratory, students interact with eminent professors engaged in world-changing research and with community leaders who are committed to providing internships and other hands-on-learning opportunities. All of these experiences are built upon a sound foundation and thorough inclusion of the arts and sciences. Students are also encouraged to be engaged in service learning opportunities such as helping build a Habitat for Humanity house, volunteer at a blood drive, or work with a local non-profit to provide services to those in need. Naturally, there is also a plethora of clubs, sports and activities to be involved in as well.
Please consider a gift to support the WSU Tri-Cities priorities below:
WSU Tri-Cities General Scholarship Fund
The WSU Tri-Cities General Scholarship Fund allows for the greatest number of students to receive financial support. This fund truly helps those students who might not otherwise qualify for academic or need based scholarships.
Professional and Community Education Fund at WSU Tri-Cities
The Professional and Community Education Fund at WSU Tri-Cities allows the campus to host lectures series, community enrichment programs and seminars. This fund supports the land grant mission of WSU Tri-Cities by allowing the campus to be a true nexus of community education.
WSU Tri-Cities TRIO Fund
The TRIO Fund supports students from, among other backgrounds, first generation families; those who are the first in their family to attend college. This fund supports students whose educational experience would be at risk, where it not for this financial support.
