  • We recommend typing your essays in a word or text 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) click on the Sign In button in the top right-hand corner of the page.
  • 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.

Please visit the External Scholarship List for opportunities offered to Mason students from both local and national organizations.
