Apply for Scholarships
Scholarships are free aid to help fund your education. In addition to filing a FAFSA, scholarships have separate applications because they can take into account a variety of student characteristics (e.g. academic achievement, financial need, diverse and unique backgrounds, leadership skills, specific majors and career choices, first generation status, service to school and community, or disabilities). Some scholarship applications are available as early as October, and for your best chances be sure to apply early. For more information about scholarships and to apply online, visit our Scholarship page.
Make sure to notify the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships of any outside (non-PSU) scholarships that you receive so that we can reflect them on your award and work with the agency to apply the funds to your account at Portland State.
