Scholarships | Student Financial Aid | Kent State University


Kent State helps you find your purpose while providing an education that’s a good value for your future. We want to make it easy to afford and to plan for your college expenses.

The Kent Campus offers a variety of scholarships for new students. You can qualify for scholarships for many reasons: academic merit, talent, financial need, field of study or participation in a specific program, organization or activity. Scholarship offers and award amounts will be determined by official testing and high school transcript information submitted to Kent State University at the time of application.  December 2018 is the last acceptable ACT/SAT test date for scholarship consideration.  Begin by selecting the appropriate category below:

Financial need is determined by the FAFSA. Students wishing to be considered for 2019-2020 need-based financial aid are encouraged to submit their FAFSA by the Dec. 1, 2018 priority date.

Scholarships are automatically renewed for a total of 4 years, provided the student maintains the academic requirements.
