Search Tips and How-To Videos

Kent State uses a portal called ScholarshipUniverse. This portal identifies which external scholarships students are eligible to apply for. 

Scholarships may be very competitive. It is important for students to apply for as many scholarships as they are able to. This increases their chances of receiving needed funding.

New scholarships are posted as they become available and students should check the site often.
