The program makes high-quality, distinctive graduate programs available to students of the West at resident tuition.

Residents of Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming and residents of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are eligible. Applicants apply directly to the graduate department of the participating program. Departments can limit the number of awards available, so apply early.
