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 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. Students must complete a 2016-2017 FAFSA for the academic year which begins in the Fall of 2016.  The FAFSA application is completed 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. For a list of all FGCU Foundation Scholarships, please click here.

The Foundation Scholarship Application is now closed for the 2016-17 Academic Year.

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 $12,000 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/

    • Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) claims over 300,000 lives each year, but still, many people are unaware of the dangers of this condition. Here are six other facts about SCA and automated external defibrillators (AEDs) you might not be aware of:

      2. SCA affects roughly 16 people under the age of 18 every day.
      3. Only 1 out of 10 people who have SCA outside of a hospital survive.
      4. The survival rate for SCA victims decays by 10% for every minute without proper defibrillation; after 10 minutes, survival is negligible.
      5. AEDs have voice prompts and will talk the rescuer through every step.
      6. Under Good Samaritan Laws, voluntary rescuers are legally protected when aiding those in sudden cardiac arrest distress.

        Select one of these six facts you were previously unaware of (and maybe shocked you!) or you wished more people knew about (if you already knew about all of these facts) and submit either a short essay or video which answers the following prompt:

        For your chosen fact, address each of the following points:

        • Tell us which fact you’re choosing, starting with “I didn’t know that…” or “I wish more people knew…”
        • Recount your reaction to learning the fact

    • Some of the best life-lessons are the ones we learn from our mistakes. Share a lesson you learned when facing the consequences of bad decision-making as a driver or a passenger. Describe the situation and explain how it led to a valuable learning experience.
    • Learning how to drive is a different experience for everyone because some may find it easy to accomplish while others struggle with the challenge. Describe your experience. What did it take for you to become a confident driver? What valuable lesson(s) did you learn--about yourself, others, or life in general--during or after the process?
    • You may have noticed that people tend to change over time. For example, you're probably not the same person you were as a freshman in high school. Think about the driver you were when you first obtained your driver's license. Maybe you were a young and reckless driver or perhaps a timid and careful driver. Now think about the driver you are today. Describe how you have changed as a driver. Does this transformation reflect changes in other aspects of your life (i.e. driving more carefully after a near-death experience, driving aggressively after losing your job, etc.)? If so, explain. Would you consider this transformation to your benefit or do you see it as a potential problem? Why?
    • Although the vast majority of the country's population drives on a regular basis, there are still many people who do not. Are you one of them? What's keeping you from getting behind the wheel? Maybe the city you live in is not commuter-friendly, maybe you cannot afford to buy a car, or perhaps you simply choose not to drive. Describe your situation. Is this an obstacle for you? Why or why not? How has not driving influenced you and your life?
