Scholarship Application

To apply for scholarships, you must first submit an Application for Admission. The Scholarship Application can be submitted after applying for admission. Access your Scholarship Application after applying through your Admissions Status Check Page or the link emailed to you after submitting your application.

Georgia Southern University awards scholarships to new students based on academic merit and responses on the Scholarship Application. To be considered for merit-based scholarships, entrance into the Honors College, and entrance into leadership programs, students must be both accepted to Georgia Southern and complete the Scholarship Application.

Where to submit your Scholarship Application:

Complete the Scholarship Application after submitting your Application for Admission. Access through your Admissions Status Check Page or the link emailed to you after submitting your application.

Helpful Tips for Completing Your Application

  • You must apply for admission for access to your Scholarship Application.
  • You can access the Scholarship Application after submitting your Application for Admission. We will email you a link, and you can access it from through your Admissions Status Check Page. The link will only be live between August 1 and May 2.
  • To be considered for scholarships, you must be both accepted to Georgia Southern and have submitted the Scholarship Application by the scholarship application deadline.
  • To be considered for Honors College scholarships or admission to the Honors College via a holistic review, students must complete the Scholarship Application and write the Honors College essay within the application. (The Honors College application deadline is May 1.)
  • To be considered for admission into the Southern Leaders Program (Statesboro) or the Nick Mamalakis Emerging Leaders Program (Savannah), students must select that they are interested in Leadership Programming on the Scholarship Application.
  • The sooner you begin and submit the application, the better. You never know what unforeseen issues (technological or other) may arise, and some scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Do not wait until the night before the deadline.
  • Read the entire application and complete all of the essays or questions that apply to you and your interests.
  • Write your personal statement and essays in advance of the deadlines to allow for time to proof and revise. We suggest writing and proofing your essays in a Microsoft Word document, then copying and pasting the essays into the application when you are ready to submit.
  • Check your major on your Admissions Status Check Page.  If the major listed is different than what you’ve listed on your scholarship application, contact the Office of Admissions at scholarships@georgiasouthern.edu.
  • Once your Scholarship Application is received, all of your materials will be reviewed.
  • Make sure to check your email on a regular basis.  If you have opted out of receiving emails, you may miss out on valuable information concerning scholarships. If you’re unsure as to whether or not you are receiving emails from Georgia Southern, contact the Office of Admissions. The email address used to communicate with you will be listed under Personal Information on the Admissions Status Check Page.
  • Get to know your Admissions Counselor.  They will be your best resource concerning scholarships and can recommend you to the scholarship committees.
