Early application to the university is strongly encouraged as scholarships are limited. Applicants are highly encouraged to prepare an essay for consideration by the Scholarship Committee. The essay should be submitted with the admissions application. The Scholarship Committee will begin making awards in January to students who are planning to enroll in the fall semester. Awards will continue to be offered on a rolling basis throughout the winter and early spring.
Many of the scholarships listed above were established through contributions from alumni, friends, corporations, and associates of the Shippensburg University Foundation, a not-for-profit organization incorporated in 1977 to support the university's programs and services. External Scholarships to attend Shippensburg University are available from a variety of private, government, and outside sources. Students are encouraged to contact local libraries, foundations, civic and business organizations, and use the Internet to collect information about scholarships available from other private sources.
