Academic, Alumni, Regional, and Special Interest Scholarship Opportunities
To be considered for scholarship opportunities at JCU, in addition to our Merit Scholarship, Legacy Grant, and Catholic Commitment Award, students must complete the JCU Class of 2027 Scholarship Application by January 3, 2023. We also encourage students to submit the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by December 1, 2022, to determine whether they might be eligible for additional financial support.
Be sure to research and apply for outside scholarships, which can help you gain additional support for your John Carroll educational experience. All legitimate scholarship searches should be free and should not ask for any credit card or bank information. If you are unsure of the legitimacy of a scholarship offer or search, please do not hesitate to contact Student Enrollment and Financial Services or the Better Business Bureau.
