There are over 700 scholarships offered by various Kent State University departments. The Student Financial Aid Online Scholarship Search is a database that contains the most recent scholarship information available to Kent State students. Some scholarships are administered by the Student Financial Aid Office. However, the majority of scholarships are managed by individual academic departments. To use the Scholarship Search, students complete a short profile and are then presented with a list of scholarships for which they may be eligible to apply. Each scholarship description will provide the student with eligibility criteria, the application deadline date, and a link to an online application, a printable application, or information on where to find more information about a specific scholarship program.
Scholarship helpful tips:

Student loans are a form of financial aid that must be repaid. Therefore, it is important that students borrow wisely and borrow only what they need to cover their academic expenses each academic year. It is important that you set a budget each year and stick to it. Your FAFSA application serves as your student loan application for the Federal Direct Stafford Loan program. Kent State will offer you a student loan that you then must accept via your FlashLine account.
