Freshmen Scholarship Application

Our priority deadline for Freshmen Scholarships has passed, however, it's not too late to submit an application. Applications received after March 1 will be considered once those that have met our priority deadline have been exhausted. 

Thank you for your interest in applying for scholarships at Northeastern State University. Carefully read the instructions below before you begin your application.

Scholarship Application Deadlines

Honors and Leadership: February 1, 2017
Freshmen: March 1, 2017
Finish in 4: March 1, 2017

To begin, you must create a unique user name and password.  This user name/password combination will be used exclusively to apply for scholarships at NSU. It will also allow you to update your application and review the status of submitted applications. 

After completing the general information section, select the type of scholarship you would like to apply for. You must complete the Freshmen Application before you can begin the Freshmen Leadership Application or the Finish in 4 Application. 

Students interested in completing the Leadership Application should obtain the email addresses of three references. These references will fill out a recommendation form on your behalf. One must be your high school counselor. The other two references should be familiar with your leadership ability.  

It is recommended that you type your short and long answer essay question answers in a Word document as a rough draft/working copy to easily proofread and edit. After you are satisfied with your submission, copy and paste it into the provided spaces on the application itself. This should alleviate any issues with the application timing out or not saving your information.
