Applying for Scholarships

We encourage all students to apply for scholarships.

Apply for Scholarships

BYU scholarships are for current students or those applying for admission. We encourage all students to complete the online scholarship application, regardless of their circumstances. To be considered for academic, need-based, and private awards, complete the ‘Period’ section and first three optional sections (Personal, Essays, and Need).

Additional sections of the application are for more specific awards and for each you complete you will be considered. 

You must apply for scholarships on or before posted deadlines, even if you have not yet been admitted to the university. Your application for scholarships will be processed once you are admitted.
