All Opportunities

Welcome to the Lander University Scholarship Opportunities Homepage
Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. Award amounts can vary or be split between multiple students.

The 2023-2024 Lander University scholarship application for all new, continuing, and transfer students is now open!
1. You must be admitted to Lander University to log in and complete a scholarship application.
2. You will need to complete the General Application every year. Once submitted, you will be automatically matched for many of the scholarships available based on your application information. Students are not notified of auto-matched scholarships
3. The application system will also identify scholarships for which you may be qualified but require some additional information beyond what you have shared in the General Application. Click on Opportunities > Recommended to review these scholarships, determine if you are a match, and then click on “Apply”.
4. If you are scheduled to graduate from Lander during the 2022-2023 academic year, you will not be eligible for 2023-2024 academic year scholarships unless you have been accepted by a Graduate Studies program at Lander.

Please keep in mind that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for any opportunity that requires the student to demonstrate “financial need”.

Click “Sign In” and use your Lander University email and password to begin the General Application.

All questions marked with an asterisk (*) are required to submit the General Application. Please try to answer as many questions as possible to ensure that you are considered for all appropriate scholarships.

This application is for all incoming freshmen, transfer students, graduate, and continuing students who plan to enroll at Lander in the 2023-2024 academic year.
