Scholarship Frequently Asked Questions
myScholarships is a free, online scholarship application system that allows GVSU students to apply to 400+ endowed and departmental scholarships and is accessed on the GVSU scholarships webpage.
October 1 is generally a good time to begin exploring scholarships for the following academic year. This is also when myScholarships opens each year.
Organizations offering scholarships should not ask you for personal information, such as your social security number or banking information. Do not apply if there are any fees connected to the application
Most scholarships in GVSU’s myScholarships have an annual deadline of March 1; however, Non-GVSU Scholarships vary and will be listed along with other requirements.
External/Outside Scholarships are scholarships that have no affiliation to GVSU and can be accessed on the GVSU Scholarships webpage.
All scholarships should have an “eligibility requirements” section that outlines the qualifications for prospective applicants. Make sure that you meet all of the eligibility requirements before applying.
There is no limit to the number of scholarships for which you can apply to increase your chances to receive funding.
Awards through myScholarships and External/Outside Scholarships will be split between both fall and winter semesters - unless otherwise stated in the scholarship guidelines.
