Scholarship Match Program | Kent State University

Scholarship Match Program

The Kent State Stark Scholarship Match Program will match any outside scholarship that an incoming freshman brings to Kent State Stark for the Fall 2018 semester, up to a total of $1,000.  

To be eligible for this award, the student must meet the following criteria:

  • Be admitted to the Stark Campus for Fall 2018 as a new incoming freshman.
  • Be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program.
  • Be registered for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester that are designated as Stark Campus courses. You will not be eligible to receive this scholarship if you register for Kent Campus or any other Regional Campus courses (even if they meet on the Stark Campus) unless you are also enrolled in a minimum of 12 Stark Campus credit hours during that same semester.
  • The scholarship must be awarded for the Fall 2018 semester or the 2018-2019 academic year.

This award is applicable only to tuition charges. If a combination of this award and any other tuition scholarship exceeds the cost of tuition at Kent State Stark, this award may be reduced or canceled.

The maximum amount that a student can receive in the Kent State Stark Scholarship Match Program is $1,000. If a student receives more than $1,000 in outside scholarships, the scholarship match will not exceed $1,000. The award will be divided between the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters, even if the outside scholarship award is only for the fall semester. This award is not renewable.

All external scholarships reported on the application form are considered as part of your total financial aid package for the 2018-2019 academic year and may result in changes to your current financial aid package.
