First-Year Scholarships

Students must have applied for and been offered admission to SRU in order to be considered for any scholarships.

At Slippery Rock University, we offer scholarships that are based on diverse criteria specific to each scholarship including academic record, talent, place of residence and major. SRU proudly awards approximately 2 million dollars in scholarships annually to the incoming freshman class. Students should complete the application for admission by December 1 to automatically be considered for merit scholarships.  Students who apply for admission after December 1 will be considered for scholarships if funds are available.  Be sure to also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at
