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.

State 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’ or family’s employers, and their own employer’s tuition benefits. Please note that third-party scholarships may factor into your overall eligibility for financial aid and Columbus State University scholarships.

We are excited to announce the launch of Scholarship Universe to assist students in searching for external scholarships. Scholarship Universe is an online scholarship platform that matches students to relevant external scholarship opportunities throughout the United States. Each external scholarship opportunity a student sees on Scholarship Universe has gone through an extensive vetting process to ensure the scholarship is offered through a reliable and authentic source. Simply answer a few introductory questions, and you will be matched to eligible scholarship opportunities to which you can apply directly on-line!
