Our Opportunities

ADMITTED SVSU STUDENTS (including new incoming freshmen): To be considered for private (donor-funded) scholarships, students must complete a General Scholarship Application through this site (referred to as “General Application”) once enrolled at SVSU (an SVSU ID and password is required to Log In and is issued when students are admitted). Completing this process automatically submits your application to certain scholarships for which you may qualify, and may also suggest more scholarships (Recommended Opportunities) that require you to answer additional questions or provide more information to determine your eligibility. PLEASE NOTE that completing this process is necessary to be considered for private scholarships offered at SVSU. All students should complete a General Application each year. Opportunities exist for returning students and graduate students, too!

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS AND GUESTS: Searching using “Show Filters” or by Keywords may be helpful in browsing opportunities prior to admission to SVSU. You may click the “Show Filters” button above to filter results by academic college/special category (available options are on a drop-down selection list). If you are searching by keywords, you may enter text in the search box below. Please try both general and specific terms for the most results (i.e., if you are interested in “science” scholarships, try general terms like “science” and more targeted search words like “biology”, “engineering”, “chemistry”, etc.). You may also browse the full list below of all scholarship opportunities (availability and award amounts may vary by academic year). Becoming an admitted SVSU student and completing your scholarship application (General Application) is the best way to identify the scholarships for which you qualify.
