NEP Department scholarships are available to BS NEP, MS CPD, MS NEP, and PhD NEP students. The funds range from $250-$1,000 per year. Applications are due May 15 each year. Awards are made in July. Additional monies are available to undergrads and graduate students through WSU, as well as outside agencies.

Additional Scholarship Opportunities

These scholarship opportunities are from the Philanthropy Northwest network of philanthropic organizations across Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, and Hawaii.

Reduced Tuition Opportunity

Residents of certain western states and territories, who are accepted to the MS CPD, are eligible for significantly reduced tuition through the Western Regional Graduate Program. Rather than pay out-of-state costs, tuition is assessed at or near the cost of resident tuition. This typically saves about $7,000 per semester. If admitted to the MS CPD, students will work with the NEP Academic Coordinator to receive the tuition reduction.


PhD NEP students are eligible for teaching assistantships. Work includes being a TA in the undergraduate nutrition and exercise labs. Details about the positions will be discussed with individual students during the application and admissions process.
