Our Opportunities

Welcome to Southeast Missouri State University’s online scholarship database! Southeast is proud to award approximately 1,500 endowed scholarship opportunities to admitted Southeast students.

  • Automatch Scholarships: All admitted students are automatically considered for these scholarships, and no additional application is needed.
  • Recommended Scholarships: Admitted students who meet the basic criteria for these scholarships will be emailed, encouraging them to apply and supply additional information. Applications open in October, for the following academic year.

Students who are chosen for a scholarship will be notified through their Southeast email, with most awards announced in April/May for the upcoming academic year.

In addition to scholarships offered by Southeast, some External Scholarships may be viewed under the “Opportunities” heading. These scholarships are not affiliated with Southeast Missouri State University.
