FSU Grants & Scholarships
Institutional aid is a form of financial assistance that is awarded to students by Frostburg State University. These programs are exclusively for FSU students. The different types of institutional aid offered by FSU are listed below. Students must meet satisfactory academic progress standards to receive these awards. Student must also be full-time (12 credits or more for undergraduate students or 9 credits or more for graduate students) in order to receive and retain each scholarship unless otherwise stated in the scholarship criteria.
Frostburg FSU Grants - A Frostburg Grant is an award that comes directly from Frostburg State University. An FSU Grant is free money that does not need to be repaid. To qualify for an FSU Grant, students must have a significant amount of financial need as determined by FAFSA. To receive priority consideration for an FSU Grant, students must have their FAFSA processed by March 1.
The Financial Aid Office reviews all eligible applicants to determine the amount of FSU Grant money given to students each year. The amount will vary based on allocation of funds from the institution and the number of eligible applicants. Please note that students pursuing a second bachelors degree are not eligible for FSU Grant funds.
Institutional and Departmental Scholarships – Frostburg State University offers a variety of institutional and departmental scholarships. The amounts of these awards vary, and each has its own set of requirements that a student must meet in order to be eligible.
The requirements for institutional and departmental scholarships may include one or more of the following: academic performance, financial need, specific curriculum requirements, etc. Enrollment status will be evaluated each semester at the end of the drop/add period. If a student receives a scholarship that is based on full-time enrollment and he/she is not enrolled in at least 12 credits (9 credits for graduate students), the scholarship will be cancelled. No scholarship will be awarded for enrollment below 6 credits. Some awards have specific minimum grade point averages that must be maintained, and the minimum for any award is a 2.5 overall grade point average. Recipients are reviewed at the end of each semester.
