Undergraduate Scholarships

Departmental Scholarships

Each of Auburn University's 12 colleges and schools awards scholarships separate from the scholarships awarded at the university level. In addition, various departments within each college or school may award scholarships. Students should contact the college or school and department in which they plan to major for Departmental Scholarship opportunities.

Overview


Criteria for Departmental Scholarships vary and may include but not be limited to academic major, geographic location, academic achievement, and financial need. Incoming students accepted for admission must complete the scholarship application through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) by February 15 to receive consideration for Departmental Scholarships. Current Auburn students must complete the scholarship application through AUSOM by March 1 to receive consideration for Departmental Scholarships. Students accepted to the Nursing, Pharmacy, or Veterinary Medicine professional program should complete the scholarship application through AUSOM by June 1 to receive Departmental Scholarship consideration.

To receive maximum consideration for need-based scholarships, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)*, available online beginning January 1. The FAFSA must be received by Auburn University by March 1.

Departmental Scholarships are awarded in early April, and awards amounts vary. Additional information regarding Departmental Scholarships may be found on the websites for the respective academic departments.

*The FAFSA is the only form a student is required to complete to be considered for student assistance from any of the Title IV, HEA programs except for information needed to ensure the student’s eligibility for such assistance (e.g., information needed to complete verification or to demonstrate compliance with the student eligibility provisions of the HEA and the regulations). Additional information, if requested, will be listed on the student’s Tiger I Financial Aid Requirements page after the student’s FAFSA results are received. For additional information, visit the Office of Financial Aid.
