2022-23 Scholarships and Waivers

2022-2023 Scholarship Application is now open!

Southeastern offers many scholarships to help you finance your education. A scholarship is a financial award given to a student on the basis of academic achievement and promise. Many are awarded based on merit and on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, some also take into account financial need. We recommend you apply as early as possible. While scholarships do not have to be repaid, most require full-time enrollment (minimum 12 hours per semester) and have academic progress requirements that must be maintained.

STEPS TO APPLY

  1. To apply for a scholarship, you must be admitted to Southeastern. Click here to complete the admissions application.
