Scholarships and Awards

Kent State University offers a variety of scholarship opportunities for students enrolled at the Kent Campus and the Regional Campuses. Scholarship awards are based upon a variety of criteria. Selection is typically based on academic merit (GPA and/or test scores); demonstrated financial need; leadership experience; field of study; participation in a specific program, organization or activity; or any combination of the above.

Freshmen on the Kent Campus who wish to apply for a scholarship must be admitted to the university by January 15. Freshmen applying after this date will be considered for these scholarships if funds are available. Regional Campus students should contact the their admissions representative regarding scholarship opportunities and application procedures. Additional information regarding Kent State University scholarships and/or applications are available on the Student Financial Aid website.

There are more than 600 scholarships available to Kent State University students. The Scholarship Search Qualifier is a database that contains information regarding each of these programs. Students who visit the website will have the opportunity to submit their personal information to determine which departmental scholarships they may be eligible to receive. The database provides eligibility criteria, application deadlines and contact information.


An endowed scholarship is one of the most significant and meaningful gifts alumni, friends, corporations and foundations can provide to benefit Kent State University. Kent State is fortunate to have hundreds of scholarships established by thoughtful and generous benefactors. The following is a list of scholarships and awards that have been endowed at a level of $25,000 or more. Students are considered for these scholarships and awards through the normal procedures involved in requesting university financial aid or through selection by department committees. Additional information regarding scholarships can be found on the the Student Financial Aid website.
