Office of Sponsored Students

The West Virginia University Office of Sponsored Students accommodates the needs of our students and their sponsors.

The West Virginia University Office of Sponsored Students accommodates the needs of our students and their sponsors. Sponsored students are students who receive a financial scholarship from a government, an organization or a company- not from private individuals and/or companies. Sponsors have an established contract with WVU and are billed directly. Sponsors are usually based in the student’s home country. The role of the Office of Sponsored Students is to be a central liaison between the student, the sponsor, and the University by providing specialized services, advising, contract negotiation and other program management related to specific sponsor requirements.

Students

We understand that sponsors have certain expectations and requirements that you must meet, and we are here to help you.
