Our Opportunities

The General Application automatically matches students with scholarship opportunities for which they meet the criteria, based on their application and their Mason student record. The General Application includes both merit-based and financial need-based internal scholarships. Consideration for need-based scholarships requires the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Alternate Needs Assessment Form submitted to the financial aid office no later than March 1 for maximum scholarship consideration.

Recommended Opportunities or Apply to Opportunites
Recommend Opportunities may require a student to complete additional questions. Students will receive a confirmation email to their Mason email address. Applications deadlines may vary.

Current Students
The scholarship application is open to all continuing undergraduates, admitted transfers, and graduate students, to review and apply for scholarship opportunities offered through the Office of Student Financial Aid and various departments.

Application Overview
• To access the online application, students must use their Patriot Pass log in credentials (NetID username and password) click on the Sign In button in the top right-hand corner of the page.
• Some departmental (School of Business, Nursing and College of Education) scholarships require resumes and/or other documents. Please ensure ample time for additional documents to be complete and submitted by the scholarship deadline.
• We recommend typing your essays in a word processing program to take advantage of spell checking and word counting. Once you are done, just copy and paste your text into the application.

Award Notifications
Notification of Mason internal scholarships begins mid-June and continues through August. Only students selected for the award will receive an official letter via email from the department or award committee. Students may view their awards on Patriot Web in the Financial Aid Awards section.
