Our Opportunities

Welcome to MTSU’s online scholarship application! This site will allow you to view some (not all) of the scholarship opportunities available, and to apply for those scholarship opportunities. For additional scholarship opportunities, contact the department of your major.

This application is applying for scholarships to be awarded during the Fall 2019 – Spring 2020 academic year. The deadline to complete the online scholarship application for consideration for most scholarships is February 15, 2019.

To apply, sign-in to the site (click blue button on right side at the top of this page) and complete the “Profile Information”. The “Profile Information” is the online scholarship application. This section must be completed in its entirety in order to be eligible for scholarship consideration.

Once you have completed the “Profile Information” section in its entirety, you will be ‘automatched’ to the scholarship opportunities that you meet the basic criteria for. Your eligibility is determined off your official MTSU student educational file and your responses to the “Profile Information”. You will be able to view the scholarship opportunities that you have been ‘automatched’ to. Being ‘automatched’ to a scholarship does not guarantee a scholarship offer. You will be notified via your mtsu.edu email address within 2 months of the scholarship deadline if you were offered a scholarship or not.

After the deadline, the scholarship application will close for the Fall 2019– Spring 2020 academic year. The scholarship application will not re-open again until October 1, 2019 for scholarships to be awarded during the Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 academic year.
