All Opportunities

Welcome to Eastern Illinois University’s Scholarship Opportunities Homepage.

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications. To apply to scholarships which require an application, you must first sign in with the same EIU Net ID and password you use to access all of your EIU accounts. You will then have the opportunity to complete a General Application and, if applicable, apply for specific scholarships.

Application Process:
•To access the General Application, click “Sign in” and use your EIU username and password to login.
•After you have completed your General Application, the system will automatically match you to all scholarships you are eligible for based on the information you provided.
•The system may recommend additional scholarship opportunities that you may be eligible for, however additional steps must be taken to be considered for those scholarships.

Additional scholarship opportunities may become available after the General Scholarship Application has been completed. It is your responsibility to check your Academic Works page frequently for additional scholarship opportunities that may become available.

The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

The scholarship opportunities you are auto-matched to and apply to are for the 2019-20 academic year.

If you are awarded a scholarship you will receive an award email sent to your EIU email address.

For detailed information on how to use this system, download our Frequently Asked Questions.
