SFA has hundreds of scholarships available to new and returning students. Some scholarships are based on merit, while others have a need-based, as well as merit, criteria. Scholarships requiring audition(s) or tryout(s) are also available. Criteria which may be used to determine recipients include class rank, high school or college GPA, scores on the ACT or SAT, leadership activities, and performance. Scholarship amounts range from $100 - $8,000. Some are renewable based upon academic performance, while others are one-time awards.
We strongly encourage prospective freshmen students to review the Academic Excellence Scholarship Program criteria. Community college transfer students should review the new Community College Transfer Scholarship Program. Information on the various scholarships can be found within our navigation.
