How do students log into MyScholarships?

How do students receive scholarship consideration?

Students can apply for all Georgia Southern University Foundation (institutional) scholarships by completing the MyScholarships application found on your MyServices within MyGeorgiaSouthern.  Criteria and qualifications have already been pre-set to each scholarship opportunity. MyScholarships will match students with scholarships based on their majors/minors/year in school and other applicable qualifications. Applications are only valid for the current school year.  Students will need to complete a new form each year for future consideration.
