How do I know if I am eligible to apply for a scholarship?
Complete the USF Financial Aid questionnaire to find out if you are eligible to apply. A personal statement and student resume are required.
Where can I learn more about financial aid?
In addition to any scholarships received, you may also apply for financial aid to help cover the cost of attending the University of South Florida. Please keep in mind that you can only receive a financial aid package that equals or is less than your unmet need. Your unmet need is calculated by the Office of Financial Aid.
