Federal Student Aid announced that they are delaying the release of 2024-25 FAFSA information to all colleges and universities until “the first half of March”. Because a large number of our Ferris-awarded “Donor” scholarships are “need-based”, which means that we need FAFSA data to determine eligibility, we are going to launch ScholarshipUniverse in two phases.
Phase 1, which contains over 10,000 external scholarships (these are reputable, national scholarship opportunities that are not awarded by Ferris State) is now live. You are encouraged to check out these external scholarships.
Phase 2, which is our donor-based scholarships will go live at a later date, to be determined once we know when we will receive FAFSA data. We will announce the deadline at that time as well.
You will be able to use your Ferris360 log in information to access ScholarshipUniverse. We encourage you to read through the FAQ’s and tutorials to learn how to navigate the system.
