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 2019-2020 were determined during spring 2019 but there are several scholarships currently accepting applications. They are listed first. Awards will be applied to 2019-2020 tuition.

The Scholarship Application Season for 2020-2021 will open on January 13, 2020.

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 13th to apply for individual scholarships. Two-thirds of the scholarships 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.
