Our Opportunities


Welcome to St. Cloud State University’s scholarship application site offering over 480 different scholarships with a wide range of eligibility requirements.

Most scholarship awards for academic year 2020-2021 were determined during spring 2020 but there are several scholarships currently accepting applications. These are listed first. Awards will be applied to 2020-2021 tuition.

The Scholarship Application Season for 2021-2022 will open on January 11, 2021.

You may submit a General Scholarship Application for next year NOW (if you will be enrolled) but be sure to return to Huskies Scholarships after January 11th to apply for individual scholarships. Two-thirds of them require additional information so you must apply for them individually after submitting the general application.

You must meet minimum enrollment requirements during the semester(s) a scholarship is received.
