Scholarship Opportunities @ SU

Internet Explorer (IE) and Microsoft Edge are not fully compatible with the SU Scholarship Website (Academic Works) and many features of the site will not work using IE. For optimal compatibility it is recommended that you sign in ONLY using any newer browser, for example: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.

The SU Scholarship Website (Academic Works) will open for ALL NEWLY ADMITTED fall 2023 students as of 12/01/2022 – Admitted Students for FALL 2023 should not complete the short General Application (Conditional Applicable if applicable) until 12/01/22. If you are not recommended to an opportunity on your personalized dashboard you should not apply to that scholarship opportunity because you do not meet the minimum qualifications for the scholarship.

The SU Scholarship Website (Academic Works) is open for ALL currently enrolled students (fall 2022 and Spring 2023) to apply to scholarships that you may be recommended to apply to on your dashboard after you complete your General Application (and Conditional Application, if applicable) for the 2022-2023 academic year. Please follow the instructions once you sign in to the website. Some scholarships will be open during the fall 2022 semester for currently enrolled SU Students to apply to for this current academic year (22-23). Please check the site often for any updates!

Welcome to Salisbury University’s Scholarship Website -(Academic Works) – institutional scholarship website! The University offered more than a $1.3 million dollars in scholarships to SU students last year. These scholarships may be applied for annually through SU’s Scholarship Website, Academic Works. These scholarships are funded through generous contributions from alumni, faculty and staff, friends, parents, campus organizations and other affiliates.

Please keep in mind that academic merit (Presidential scholarship), Good Neighbor undergraduate scholarship and SU Fund need-based scholarships for incoming students are determined via your SU admissions application and/or FAFSA. For more information on calculating potential incoming merit and need-based awards at SU, check out the Net Price Calculator

Who can apply?
Incoming freshmen and transfer students who are admitted to the University and all currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate Salisbury University students. Non-degree and certificate students are not eligible for scholarships.

When can I apply for scholarships for the fall 2023 – spring 2024 school year?
The fall 2023-spring 2024 scholarship application process will begin on December 1, 2022. Deadline dates for scholarship will vary, check the website for details. You are required to complete a new general application every year!

How do I apply?
1. To access the General Application, click “Sign In” in the upper right hand corner of the screen and use your SU username and password to login to the site.
2. After you have completed your General Application, the system will automatically match you to all scholarships you are eligible for based on the information you provided.
3. Applicants must complete all required questions on the “Profile Information” section before proceeding to other activities in the system.
4. While Academic Works matches you to scholarships you may be eligible for, keep in mind that you may be required to provide more information dependent on the scholarship opportunity requirements.
5. Some scholarships require the applicant to demonstrate financial need; in order to be considered for those scholarships a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) FAFSA Website must be submitted. The FAFSA for the 2022-2023 academic year is NOW OPEN!
6. If a 2022-2023 FAFSA is required as part of a scholarship criteria, you must have it completed before you would be recommended to apply to a scholarship opportunity on this site. Allow 3-4 business days after filing the FAFSA for this site to process the new data.
7. Stay on top of the “Deadline” column when reviewing scholarship opportunities as these dates reflect when you must complete the scholarship application to receive consideration for the scholarship.

How will I know if I’m eligible for new scholarships?
Additional scholarship opportunities may become available after the General Scholarship Application has been completed. It is your responsibility to check your Academic Works page frequently for additional scholarship opportunities that may become available. Keep an eye on deadline dates, as those will vary!

How will I be notified if I’m chosen as a recipient of a scholarship?
If you are awarded a scholarship you will receive an award email sent to your SU email address. Submitting a General Application or scholarship specific application does not guarantee you will be selected as a recipient. Non-selected recipients may not be notified by email of such.

Please note that the advertised scholarship dollar amounts are subject to change without notice based on verified funding levels and current scholarship commitments. The scholarship dollar amount published/posted should only be used as an estimate.

Salisbury University is a Division III member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and therefore athletic leadership, ability, participation or performance cannot be utilized as a criterion in the determination of your financial aid award. As you apply for scholarships within Salisbury University’s Academic Works scholarship site please do not mention athletic leadership, ability, participation or performance within the essay as it will remove you from consideration for the scholarship to ensure Salisbury University’s continued compliance with Bylaw 15.4.1 of the NCAA regulations.
