Scholarship Universe at Kent State
Kent State's ScholarshipUniverse is a new search portal that helps match students to scholarships. To get started, you’ll need to complete a Student Profile. The questions you’ll be asked to answer will help match you to scholarships. While you don’t have to answer all of these questions – the more you answer, the better your search results will be. In addition, ScholarshipUniverse is able to match students to external scholarship opportunities.  Students will need to complete separate application(s) for the scholarships they are matched.
