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.

The Freshman Scholarship Application for donor scholarships for the 2020-2021 academic year is now open.  Please click here for the Fall 2020 Freshman Scholarship Application.
