SFA students have until just before midnight Friday to apply for scholarship assistance from the SFA Alumni Association.
The Alumni Association scholarship deadline 11:59 p.m. Friday, Feb.1.
The application is on the students MySFA webpage. By filing out one application the student will apply to hundreds of scholarships.
Mo Williams, the previous scholarship coordinator, said, “Funds are awarded through interest received every year and can typically range anywhere between $100 and $5,000.”
A majority of the scholarships are endowments, which means someone established the fund in honor of a person, organization or a major. It is possible for a student to be awarded more than one scholarship.
Students must have good academic standing with at least a 2.0 GPA to be considered for the scholarships. They must also have access to the MySFA webpage.
The application is found in the myservices tab on MySFA. The link is called “Apply for scholarships.” There are two different scholarship applications—one is for current students and the other is for new students. You are a new student if your first semester at SFA is fall of 2013.
By the first week of May, students will be emailed letting them know whether they have been awarded a scholarship.
