Scholarships are an excellent way to fund your education. Many scholarships are one-time only, so plan on continuing your research each year. Many scholarships are offered through the APSU Online Scholarship Application, which is now open.

The 2017-2018 Scholarship Application is closed. The 2018-2019 Scholarship Application will open in September 2017.

*You must be admitted to APSU in order to apply.

Take note that although students may apply for many scholarships through our Online Application, many are also available through other methods. See below to begin browsing categories of all scholarship opportunities.
