Financial Aid



SHSU academic scholarship recipients are not selected by the Financial Aid Office (FAO). However, all scholarship awards, SHSU and/or outside donor awards, must be coordinated by the FAO. This ensures compliance with State and Federal Regulations.

SHSU has a number of academic scholarships which are awarded for scholastic achievement, and activity scholarships that are awarded for excellence in a specific activity:

  • Available to currently enrolled and new students at SHSU.
  • Each scholarship requires a separate application and/or other data. (Check with the scholarship department/agency for further information).
  • Deadlines for scholarship are usually between November and February for the following Fall semester awards. (Refer to the awarding department/agency for actual deadline).

Refer to "Scholarships" on the menu to the right for general scholarship information, specific details about SHSU scholarships, and other scholarship opportunities.
