General And Designated Scholarships

General Scholarships

These scholarships are open to any current or prospective student in good-standing in any degree program at Southeastern. General Scholarships are awarded from Southeastern’s largest standard-aid funds, which most students are eligible for. Currently, most awards range anywhere from $200–$600 or more per semester or year. These scholarships are committee-determined and are granted on basis of need, while also taking into consideration other sources of aid and the availability of funds.

Designated Scholarships

These scholarships include awards from the institution’s specified sources of financial aid. They are granted from funds for which their donors have outlined very specific eligibility criteria. Awards can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars per semester or year, depending on the specific scholarship. Awards of this type are committee-determined and are based on donor specifications such as academics, degree program, ethnicity, gender, Christian character, and many more.

How to Apply

In order to be eligible for financial aid at Southeastern, all college students are required to complete both the Standard Financial Aid Application as well as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®).
