Scholarships - Columbus State University

Office of Financial Aid


Each year, more than 1,200 undergraduate and graduate students benefit from university scholarships totaling more than $3 million. Typical scholarship awards range in value from $100 to $5,000 in academic year support and include both merit- and need-based opportunities. Each award is made possible by our generous donors who understand the value a scholarship represents in making college affordable and equipping students to achieve their goals.

Students who may benefit from need-based scholarships should also consider completing the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) since data from the FAFSA is used to verify eligibility for need-based financial scholarships.

CSU participates in the Hope and Zell Miller scholarship programs and the Hope Grant program. More information about these is available on the Georgia Student Finance Commission website.

External Scholarships

Students may qualify for third-party scholarships through companies, foundations, civic and religious organizations, their parents'/family's employers, and their own employer's tuition benefits. High school counselors, GAfutures and other free internet sites are excellent resources for researching and applying for these opportunities. Please note that third-party scholarships may factor into your overall eligibility for financial aid and Columbus State-based university scholarships.
