Fayetteville State University (FSU) and external agencies offer scholarships that provide financial assistance to students to help cover the costs of their education. These scholarships are essentially free money that students receive to support their academic pursuits, and unlike loans, they do not need to repay them. FSU, along with external organizations, offer a range of scholarship opportunities for students to access funds that can be used for tuition, textbooks, living expenses, and other educational costs. Ultimately, scholarship opportunities play a vital role in making higher education more affordable and accessible to students, helping them achieve their educational goals without accumulating debt.

Scholarships are typically awarded based on various criteria, including academic achievement, financial need, specific talents, or affiliations with particular groups or communities. Students can apply for these scholarships by meeting the specified eligibility requirements and following the application process. To maximize your chances of securing these valuable scholarships, it is crucial to thoroughly complete all parts of the application and submit it by the designated timeframe. Missing or incomplete applications may result in missed opportunities for financial assistance. These scholarships can significantly ease the financial burden of education, so we encourage all eligible students to ensure that their applications are complete and submitted on time to make the most of these opportunities.

FSU offers one General Scholarship Application which makes you eligible for many of our Institutional Scholarship opportunities. Although you only have to apply once, we encourage you to explore the scholarships we offer. Please note, that some Institutional scholarships have limited funding and require you to complete a specific application (KTCC Keen, Military Tuition Scholarship. Valeria Fleming STEM, ect.).
