Current Students
The General Scholarship Application automatically matches current Mason students (undergraduates, graduates, and admitted transfers) with scholarship opportunities based on their application and Mason student academic record (completed hours and Mason GPA).

After completing the General Application, applicants may be directed to a Conditional Application or the Recommended Opportunities page. Conditional Applications and Recommend Opportunities require a student to complete additional questions.

Graduate Students
Some graduate programs may use this application for incoming graduate students. All graduate students are encouraged to check within their department regarding assistantships, fellowships, and scholarship opportunities.
