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.
