Current Students:
For a more accurate list of opportunities you may be eligible for, click the red “Sign In” button on this page to begin your General Application. You must have an SIUE username and password to be able to sign in and begin the application process. Once you complete your General Application, the system will automatch it with all scholarships in which you meet the criteria. Meeting the qualification criteria means you will be entered into the pool of applicants for a particular scholarship. It does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

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.
  • Ours – Lists all SIUE Scholarships, excluding external scholarships.
  • External – These scholarships are posted for non-SIUE scholarship organizations. They have their own application and deadlines. For more information, click on their hyperlink.
