YSU Scholarships Opportunities
Youngstown State University has established a new scholarship that will provide $1,000 to incoming freshmen.

For more information go to: First Opportunity Award
Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program (Application Due March 1st): we offer scholarships ranging from $1500–$5200 (everyone gets at least $1500, the higher amounts are based on need) to current and incoming students who are majoring in a STEM field. Students coming from high school must have at least a 2.5 GPA and must be eligible for the beginning math course required for their major of choice (see application for math requirements). We award 25–30 new COF scholarships per year. This scholarship is renewable as long as students maintain a 3.0 GPA and are actively involved in required Choose Ohio First activities. This scholarship is IN ADDITION to YSU Merit-Based awards, so students qualifying, for example, for the Red and White Scholarship ($2000) who are also eligible for the full $5200 award from us would be getting almost a full ride in scholarships.
Visit Choose Ohio First for more information.
