Completion of the General Application is the only requirement for some of the scholarships in our system. These will be auto-matched to candidates that meet the requirements. Some scholarships below require supplemental questions be answered by the applicant to complete the application process. If you see an opportunity you are interested in click “Apply” and answer the additional questions.

You can narrow your search to opportunities that will be awarded for a certain semester, by searching “Spring,” "Summer,” or “Fall.” Though all scholarships have a closing date, many are rolling awards and offers are made periodically leading up to the semester. You may be offered a scholarship before the close date so we can get aid packages in order.

Students will be notified via CougarNet email if they are selected to receive a Scholarship.
