Scholarships are an excellent way to fund your education. A scholarship can be based on academic qualifications, or on talent, or on a variety of other qualifications. The key to earning a scholarship is to make the effort to identify scholarships that you may qualify for, respond fully and accurately to any application requirements, and don't give up! Remember to begin your search one year prior to your attendance. Remember -- many scholarships are one time only - so plan on continuing your research each year.

Scholarships are considered a financial resource in determining your need for other aid, and must be reported to the FSU Office of Financial Aid through your Financial Aid Student Toolkit outside resource page.



    Scholarship Scams!

    Beware of any scholarship search service that charges a fee.  The information that you are paying for could be obtained through another source at no cost. This  Scholarship Scam web page at finaid.org  offers excellent guidance on how to identify and avoid scholarship scams.
