In addition to applying for Financial Aid by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or applying for the HOPE Scholarship, Georgia Southern offers many academic scholarships to help high-achieving students cover their expenses. We offer three different tiers of scholarships, each with their own interview event. To be competitive, students should have the following test scores and a strong GPA.
- Southern Scholars Showcase: 1360+ SAT or a 29+ composite ACT
- Scholars’ Day: 1270+ SAT or 27+ composite ACT
- Southern Leaders Conference & Interview Day: 1170+ SAT or a 24+ composite ACT
All scholarship events are by invitation only, so please encourage qualified students to complete the MyScholarships application. Please note, students must apply for admission to submit the application and they must be accepted to Georgia Southern’s Statesboro campus for scholarship consideration.
