Our Opportunities

PLEASE NOTE: The application is available for only a few select scholarships until May 1st.


Automatch Scholarships: Once you complete your General Application, you will be matched with scholarships for which you immediately qualify – no further action is required. To see a list of scholarships that may need additional action on your part to receive consideration, select “Recommended” under “Opportunities.” All students who qualify will be automatched to these opportunities and must complete the additional supplemental questions to be considered. Qualifying does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.
Browsing “All” Scholarships: Below is a list of all scholarship opportunities offered at Salem State University. This list shows all scholarships at Salem State, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.
Award Amount: The number and award amount of scholarships are for general information purposes only and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.
