Finding Scholarships

Seattle University Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons is creating a guide to help you research scholarships. Check back soon!

Academic Works is a database of scholarships offered by different departments at Seattle University. New scholarships are posted periodically. Please note that the scholarships listed in this database do not stack and may reduce other aid that you receive.

Student Persistence Scholarship Database

This is a small list of scholarships that we have compiled for students with different identities. Feel free to use these as a starting point for your scholarship search. To filter and view more details, please click on "View larger version" in bottom right corner. The due dates listed are intended to provide a rough idea of when scholarships are due and have not been updated to the current academic year. We encourage you to still click the links for scholarships you believe you are eligible for to see more accurate due dates.

Fee Waivers

Although they are not the same as scholarships, fee waivers can be helpful if you are looking to take exams necessary to apply to graduate school. Because fee waivers can take some time to process, we recommend applying well in advance of your anticipated test date.
