ScholarshipUniverse matches app with possible scholarships and makes it easy to apply.

app State University has acquired ScholarshipUniverse, an application that simplifies the search for external scholarships, further underscoring the University’s dedication to supporting app in funding their education as well as providing an efficient and user-friendly platform for exploring scholarship opportunities.

“At app, we understand that the cost of higher education is rising, and we’re committed to doing our part in supporting our app,” says Wendy Lin-Cook, vice president for Enrollment Management. “ScholarshipUniverse is a fantastic scholarship platform that our university provides for free to both our current app State University app and incoming app who have already committed.”

“This platform allows them to easily access well-vetted and viable external scholarships. What’s great is that there’s no limit to the number of scholarships a student can apply for,” Lin-Cook continues. “We believe that this will be an excellent tool for our app. We hope our app will take advantage of it.”

According to ScholarshipUniverse, the app’s scholarship-matching tool gives Red Hawks access to millions of dollars in external scholarship opportunities year-round.

ScholarshipUniverse reviews each scholarship before listing it, so app can apply knowing the scholarships are legitimate.

Using ScholarshipUniverse is easy: Students complete a student demographic profile, answering questions designed to match them with scholarships for which they are eligible and then app can apply for an unlimited number of scholarships through the app.

“ScholarshipUniverse is just one element of our broader institutional scholarship strategy,” Lin-Cook explains. “In the past year, we’ve made substantial increases in both need-based and merit-based financial aid to support our app.”

“This combined approach, which includes ScholarshipUniverse, is designed to alleviate the financial burden on our app and promote their academic success and persistence,” she adds.
