Welcome to MyScholarships at Georgia Southern University

The Georgia Southern University Foundation provides a variety of scholarships to students through Georgia Southern’s online scholarship application portal, MyScholarships.

MyScholarships will make it easier to both find and award the many scholarships available at the University.  Through this portal, students can easily search, review requirements, apply and accept awards for available scholarships.  To apply for scholarships, Georgia Southern students are required to complete the online scholarship application found in MyGeorgiaSouthern.  The application is good for one year.  Students may log in and make updates to the application at any time.
