“In its commitment to transform the lives of the students and communities it serves, Wright State has created the Take Flight program to provide needed financial support to academically accomplished students,” said Wright State President Sue Edwards. “This new financial aid program is part of Wright State’s continuing efforts to support our students and help them meet their goals.”

Those enrolling at Wright State’s Dayton campus for the fall 2022, who are Ohio high school students, are eligible for the program.

Students must apply to Wright State as new, first-time students and submit their FAFSA by June 1.

The program covers the cost of up to 18 hours of undergraduate tuition each semester. Scholarships and grants awarded as part of the Take Flight Program are able to be renewed for up to eight semesters.

The university said the program also includes the following:

  • Fee waiver for the student and one family member for Summer Orientation
  • Up to $100 in textbook vouchers each academic year
  • Dedicated Success Team, including an academic advisor, success coach and career consultant
  • Special workshops related to internships, research opportunities, and career development.
