You must have an SIUE username and password to be able to sign in and begin the application process.

The system will also provide a drop down menu of opportunities for you to review, that include:

  • Recommended – These are scholarship currently open that may be recommended for you to review because you have completed your general application and appear to meet the basic criteria. Typically these scholarships have additional questions or criteria that you must meet to apply.
