Applying for Scholarships

Eastern has a variety of scholarships available for academic, leadership and athletic success. Plus, there's only one general scholarship application for all students. That means you'll be considered for all scholarships (Institutional, Foundation, Departmental, etc.) based on different factors such as academic merit, financial need and area of study.

To learn more about the types of scholarships available, visit the Institutional Scholarships and Development Foundation Scholarships webpages.

Scholarship Application Deadline

All scholarship applications should be submitted no later than February 21 every year. Scholarship applications will be accepted and reviewed for all new and returning students.

Scholarship Application Process

Beginning Nov. 15, students may apply using Eastern's online scholarship application. The user-friendly system automatically matches students to recommended scholarships based on a questionnaire. Students will need to create an AwardSpring account in order to apply for scholarships.

Important Application Information

Completed applications are due by Feb. 21. Sections left “in progress” may be completed at a later date prior to the deadline. All other progress will be saved.

While not required, application for admission to Eastern is strongly encouraged prior to this scholarship application. If you have completed an admission application, please enter your student ID #. This was provided in the email you received upon completion of the admission application. 

You will be required to upload your latest unofficial college or high school transcript (Fall 2017, if applicable) that should include your class rank (_ out of _). You will also need to upload your resume.

Freshmen applicants (less than 31 college credit hours, including fall and spring) must upload their ACT or SAT scores. Sophomores (32 or more college credit hours, including fall and spring) are not required to upload their scores, and will enter "0" in the appropriate fields.  

Applications will not be considered 'Complete' until these supporting documents have been submitted. Students with incomplete applications will not be considered for scholarships.

Upon completion of the online application, the scholarships you are eligible for are listed immediately. Once awarded, the status of the scholarship will change from “applied” to “awarded.” The recipient will also be notified by regular mail.
