Students must notify the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) of any awards received from sources other than Ball State University. Examples of these funds are awards sponsored by Elks, P.T.A., sororities, and service organizations. You will not be able to use the scholarship funds until the money is on deposit with the university. All such funds will be divided into two equal parts, with one-half of the scholarship to be used each semester unless otherwise stipulated by the donor. The scholarship may be used only for those expenses designated by the donor. We will assume that at least half-time attendance is required unless the donor provides information stating otherwise. Questions regarding use and renewal of the scholarship should be directed to the donor.
Scholarship checks from outside organizations should be sent to our office as soon as possible to ensure timely processing. After Ball State receives the funds, the scholarship is credited to your account with the Office of the Bursar (unless you need to sign the check). All such funds will be divided into two equal parts, with one-half of the scholarship to be used each semester unless otherwise stipulated by the donor.
DISCLAIMER: As the Ball State University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid becomes aware of outside scholarship opportunities, we will post them here. Although we screen these listings to eliminate any offers that do not appear to be legitimate, inclusion in this list does not indicate an endorsement or recommendation of any kind. Students should review all scholarship information carefully, especially before submitting an application fee of any kind. Our "Scholarship Scams" web page provides additional information about what to watch out for.
Other outside scholarships that require a paper application and/or are not available on the web are posted in the glass display case directly outside the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. Students are encouraged to periodically review these scholarship opportunities as well.
