How to Apply!

  • Consideration for scholarship opportunities requires completion of the General Application.
  • Many of our scholarships are Auto-Match. The General Scholarship Application will automatically match current Mason students (undergraduates, graduates, and admitted transfers) with scholarship opportunities based on their application and Mason student academic record-completed hours, Mason GPA, etc.
  • After completing the General Application, students may be directed to a Conditional Application or the Recommended Opportunities page.
  • Some Conditional Applications may require a resume or other supporting documents. Ensure ample time for additional documents to be completed and submitted by the scholarship deadline.
  • We recommend typing your essays in word or text document to take advantage of spell check and word count. Once, finished copy and paste your text into the application.
  • To access the online application, students must use their Patriot Pass log-in credentials (NetID username and password) and click on the Sign In button.
  • If you have issues logging in with your Mason Net ID (username and password), please visit the Password Management website at password.gmu.edu/Patriot Pass.

Deadline to Submit Application!
Specific scholarship deadlines will be indicated in the opportunity description (if applicable). Each school or college may have a different application deadline. Note: If a scholarship does have a deadline, the application will close at 11:59 pm EST on the listed deadline date.

Award Notifications!
