Scholarships

Florida State University is excited to announce the launch of a new centralized scholarship management system! The system, called FS4U, offers many useful online features and benefits for students as well as faculty and staff who are involved in awarding scholarships. Students can view available scholarships for which they are eligible, apply for scholarships, and view and accept scholarship offers. The following scholarships are administered through the Dean’s Office and applications are available through FS4U at fsu.academicworks.com.
