Saluki Scholarship Portal
**Opens September 12 for 2024-25 Academic Year**
The Saluki Scholarship Portal is a place where both incoming admitted students and continuing students can apply for donor-funded scholarships awarded by colleges, schools and departments across campus. Every year, in the Fall, sign in and complete a new general application and any supplemental applications in your college or major for which you are eligible. These opportunities are available in addition to any major merit freshman or transfer academic scholarships awarded upon admission.
Graduate Students: Contact the Graduate School or your academic department for scholarship information and deadlines. Students are also eligible for donor-funded scholarships in the Saluki Scholarship Portal and should review opportunities and apply yearly.
International Students: Scholarship information can be found at the Center for International Education. Students are also eligible for donor-funded scholarships in the Saluki Scholarship Portal and should review opportunities and apply yearly.

"When I opened that letter telling me I won those two scholarships, it felt as if a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I am forever grateful for those scholarships.”
