Scholarship Information 2016

Welcome back, STEMians! Now is the time to begin filling out applications for scholarships for next academic year. Most STEM Applications are due by February 15. The majority of scholarships require that you have a completed FAFSA on file, so be sure to also get your FAFSA done by February 15.

To make the process as simple as possible, you can apply for almost all YSU STEM Scholarships by filling out one application, found here. If needed, you can pick up a paper copy of the application on the STEM Scholarship Bulletin Board outside of the Dean’s Office on the second floor of Moser Hall.

Additional opportunities are listed below (check out the financial aid website for all YSU scholarship opportunities), and all of this information and more can also be found here.

Be sure to like STEM Scholarships on Facebook so you can stay up-to-date on the latest scholarships!
