Governors State University Foundation and Alumni Association scholarship funding recognizes academic excellence and is awarded to assist deserving students in their pursuit of a GSU degree. During the Academic Year 2012-2013, more than $85,000 in scholarship aid was provided to GSU students via this in-house program.

Scholarship offerings for any given year are determined from a large list of scholarships, each of which has its own criteria and funding level. In addition, the number and scale of scholarships vary from year to year, based on available funds.

Please review eligibility, criteria, and deadlines for scholarships carefully. Students are responsible for submitting required documentation on time and in a professional manner.

Scholarship offerings are closed for the Spring 2014 Semester. All current students will be sent an email to their student email accounts when scholarships become available.

If you are not a current student, please send us an email   to be placed on a notification list.
