Out-of-State Neighbors Scholarship

Out-of-State Neighbors Scholarship

As a good neighbor, Fairmont State University wants to reward students who live outside of West Virginia for the hard work they have done in high school.
As a high school senior at the top of your class with a good ACT/SAT score, you know what it takes to succeed. A degree from FSU can boost you to your next step – whether that is a career or graduate school.

FSU prides itself on offering a wide variety of high quality academic programs at an affordable cost. The Out-of-State Neighbors Scholarship gives high achieving students, like you, the opportunity to reduce your tuition cost even more.

scholarship recipients receive a $2,000 or $3,000 scholarship per year which will be applied to their tuition. The scholarship is awarded for a total of 4 consecutive years or graduation whichever may come first to those who maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative college GPA.

Scholarship funds are limited, so apply today.
