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.

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..

For SVSU family and friends who would like to help support student scholarships at SVSU, please click HERE to visit the SVSU Foundation website and click the gold “Make a Gift” button.
