 Fayetteville State Univeristy is proud to assist its deserving current and future students with tuition and fees through scholarships supported by our donors. Our Endowed Scholarships are established with $25,000 and are designated from accrued interests as funds are available. Our General Scholarships vary in amount and are awarded directly to eligible students at the beginning of each academic year. Alumni Scholarships are funded by Alumni Classes or Alumni Chapters of the National Alumni Association. Athletic Scholarships are limited to active and deserving athletes at FSU. Many of our scholarships are designated for particular majors, but some are for students in general who maintain a cooresponding grade point average.
