Our Opportunities

This list shows all St. Cloud State University scholarship opportunities in the system, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration.

Scholarships currently accepting applications are listed first. Awards will be applied to 2021-2022 tuition.

Complete your general application before applying for individual scholarships that require additional information.

• Click a scholarship’s name to see eligibility criteria and any additional question or essay requirements that will be needed for application submission.
• Application deadlines vary. Those requiring additional information will have an Apply button and show the application deadline.
• Automatch scholarships show “None” in the Actions column and do not display a deadline. These require no additional action after completing the General Application, but you must submit your General Application before that scholarship’s deadline to be considered for an award. Click the name of an automatch scholarship to display its deadline.

The Scholarship Application Season for 2022-2023 will begin January 10, 2022.
You may submit a general scholarship application for next year before January but should login during January and February to apply for individual scholarships. Most require additional information so you must apply for them individually after submitting a general scholarship application. You must meet minimum enrollment requirements during the semester(s) a scholarship is received.

Keyword examples – your major, minor, department, college/school, class level, nontraditional, veteran, volunteer, internship, diversity, hometown, student org, etc.
