Our Opportunities

To be considered for the majority of donor-funded scholarships at SVSU, 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 may automatically submit your application for 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 most private scholarships offered at SVSU.

Response to the COVID-19 crisis: The application process for 2020-2021 is open until all scholarships are awarded, allowing greater flexibility for students and the extension of many scholarship deadlines. Awards will be made beginning April 1 until all scholarships are filled, so students are encouraged to apply soon for the best selection of opportunities. Scholarships with extended deadlines will remain available until that date or until all available awards have been made, whichever comes first.

Searching using Filters should be for informational purposes only. Completing your scholarship application (General Application) is the best way to locate and apply for scholarships for which you qualify..
