The 2022-23 scholarship application will be available on November 1. Incoming students who have been accepted for admission and current students must complete the scholarship application through AUSOM by 4:45 p.m. CST on February 1 to receive consideration for general and department scholarships. For incoming freshmen, admission application files must be complete by December 1 for Early Action admission and scholarship consideration.
Students accepted to the nursing or veterinary medicine professional program or enrolled in the pharmacy professional program must complete the scholarship application through AUSOM by 4:45 p.m. CST on June 1 to receive department scholarship consideration.
Financial need is determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)* and may be considered when awarding scholarships. To be considered for need-based scholarships, the FAFSA must be received by February 1. Students selected for financial need verification are not eligible for need-based scholarships if the verification process is incomplete.
*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 My Finances Financial Aid Requirements page after the student’s FAFSA results are received. For additional information, visit the Office of Financial Aid.
The General Application has been condensed by moving questions for like scholarships, for example department scholarship questions, to Supplemental Applications. If students meet the criteria for the scholarships associated with the Supplemental Applications or express interest when prompted, students will be asked to complete these applications. Not all colleges/schools or departments have Supplemental Applications so the General Application may be the only application students are required to complete for scholarship consideration.
Supplemental Applications appear to students who must answer questions to receive consideration for scholarships awarded by the college/school or department based on the student's major. Students are encouraged or may be required to complete one or more Supplemental Applications as well as the General Application. Again, not all colleges/schools or departments have Supplemental Applications so the General Application may be the only application students are required to complete for scholarship consideration. When any Supplemental Application is completed, students will receive a confirmation email for each application at their Auburn email address.
Recommended Opportunities require additional information specific to individual scholarships. Following completion of the General Application and any Supplemental Applications, students are encouraged to review the suggested list of Recommended Opportunities and provide information requested to receive further consideration for those scholarships. When any Recommended Opportunity application is completed, students will receive a confirmation email for each application at their Auburn email address.
