Happy New Year to our current and prospective Spalding University students! January means applications are now open for the Spalding Endowed Scholarship Program – a catch-all online application for the more than 60 endowed scholarships offered at Spalding for the 2018-19 school year. (Here’s the full list of the endowed scholarships.)
Here is the link to the application form for the Spalding Endowed Scholarship Program. The deadline is midnight Friday, March 2, 2018.
In order to be considered for a scholarship, an applicant must be an officially accepted or returning student with full-time enrollment anticipated for both the Fall and Spring semesters next school year, and have filed the 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The Spalding Endowed Scholarship Program application consists of a few yes/no questions as well as several short essays. However, some of the questions require additional information. Several require an additional essay or letter or recommendation.
Because of the eligibility criteria for some of the various scholarships, a few answers can’t be ascertained solely from your student record and require asking specific yes/no questions. Don’t be discouraged if your answer to each of them is no. These answers are more of a determinant for us to help better place the candidate in the scholarship pool that best meets their qualifications or needs. Eligibility criteria may include demographic, gender, ethnicity, major, merit or financial need.
The main essay topic is: “Describe your personal journey toward earning a college degree, and how the degree impacts your future.”
Here again is the link to the endowed scholarship application form.

Spalding prides itself on offering an affordable education and helping connect eligible students with all available financial aid and scholarships. Please try your best to take advantage of the numerous awards and aid available to Spalding students.
