FGCU Foundation Scholarships

University Foundation Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, financial need, and/or other specifications set by donors.

All students may be eligible for various types of financial aid, including scholarships. Current FGCU students and prospective students who have submitted an Admissions application and have been assigned a University Identification Number (UIN) are strongly encouraged to submit an online FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application. The application is available online annually between November 15th and March 1st for the following academic year.

The application for the 2014-2015 academic year closed on March 1, 2014. The application will re-open on November 15, 2014 for the 2015-2016 academic year. The FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application is an annual process and we encourage all students to apply each year. Although completing a FAFSA form annually is highly recommended, it is not a requirement in order to complete the FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application.

Students should also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually by our March 1st priority deadline to be considered for need-based scholarships and other Financial Aid opportunities. Applicants fill out the FAFSA online. Step-by-step instructions to help you complete the application are provided online. The application can be found online at http://www.fafsa.gov/

 

Note: the FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application allows you to be considered for all scholarships you are eligible to receive.

Southern Scholarship Foundation

Southern Scholarship Foundation (SSF) offers rent-free scholarship housing for qualified students demonstrating academic achievement (with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA), financial need (as identified on the FAFSA), and good character. Scholarship recipients obtain an "Education for Life" by living in a home-like setting with students representing a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Each scholarship house maintains an environment that is drug, alcohol, and smoke free with quiet study hours. Students work in a cooperative partnership to purchase and prepare meals, and also assume responsibility for all household tasks. Students do not pay rent, but are responsible for their fair share of the basic household expenses such as food, utilities, and internet. Each student contributes approximately $950 per semester and saves up to an estimated $10,000 each year in living expenses.This includes 4 hot home cooked meals Monday-Thursday and food for the residents to prepare on their own for breakfast, lunch & snacks. It is not just housing for the residents – it is their home away from home!

For more information, please visit the SSF website: http://www.southernscholarship.org/
