THE OFFICE OF ADMISSIONS

Scholarships and Financial Aid

Harris-Stowe State University offers various scholarships each year to outstanding undergraduate students based on financial need, academic merit, or both. Merit-based scholarships from the Office of Admissions do not stack. If a student meets the minimum requirements for multiple awards, they will automatically be awarded the scholarship with the highest dollar value. Receiving a merit scholarship may not disqualify students from also receiving need-based grants or loans offered through the Harris-Stowe Office of Financial Assistance, depending upon the amount of demonstrated financial need. 

Scholarship awards are not guaranteed. Priority is given to students that have been accepted to the university prior to December 1. No additional application is required.
