Our Opportunities

Welcome to Jackson State University scholarship management site!

Sign in, complete your General Application. Once you complete the General Application, scholarships that are
currently “open” will be recommended to you if you meet the basic criteria. Please keep in mind, that recommended
does not constitute qualified. You can update and edit any application (including the General Application) until the
scholarship opportunity closes.

Scholarships with the word “apply” in the Action column (after you sign in) require further action on your part in order
to be considered. Click “apply” to complete the application process.

Please read the scholarship eligibility requirements carefully to make sure you meet the eligibility requirements (e.g. major, GPA,
enrollment requirement to receive the scholarship, other requirements as stated) before applying.

There are some scholarship opportunities you do not have to apply to but will be automatically matched to after you complete your
General Application. Qualifying for any scholarship does not guarantee you will receive the scholarship.

Deadline: This is the date by which you should complete the General Application, any Supplemental Applications, or any Individual Scholarship Applications to receive consideration.

Award: The amount stated is for general information purposes and not a guarantee of what you may receive if awarded. Actual award amounts can vary based on recipient eligibility, available funds, and other factors.

Actions: Upon completion of the General Application and any Supplemental Applications, you will be automatched with scholarships for which you meet the criteria. These scholarships indicate “None” under “Action” and require no additional information from you for consideration. A limited number of scholarships indicate “Apply” under “Action” and require individual applications for consideration. A list of these scholarships can be found by viewing Recommended Opportunities from the Opportunities tab.

*Please check your JSU email daily or sign-in to check the status of your application. *
