Incoming freshmen accepted for admission to Auburn University and enrolled and transfer students must apply through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) to receive consideration for university-wide and Samuel Ginn College of Engineering scholarships. AUSOM’s online features and benefits allow students to search, review requirements, apply and accept awards for available scholarship opportunities, all within one easy-to-use site.
All students must apply through AUSOM by March 1 each year to receive consideration for Samuel Ginn College of Engineering general and departmental scholarships. General scholarships are not restricted according to major, but may be restricted according to state or county of residency, as well as financial need. Departmental scholarships are awarded to those students who have declared that major on his or her admissions application. Priority consideration for the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering Dean’s Scholarships for incoming freshmen is given to students who apply through AUSOM by February 15 each year. For additional information or questions regarding engineering scholarships, contact Mary Lynn Saidla, engineering scholarship coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-844-2249. Remember every student must apply every year for all scholarships, including automatic renewable scholarships.
Students also applying for financial aid are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The FAFSA is the only form a student is required to complete to be considered for student assistance from any of the Title IV, HEA programs except for information needed to ensure the student’s eligibility for such assistance (e.g., information needed to complete verification or to demonstrate compliance with the student eligibility provisions of the HEA and the regulations). Additional information, if requested, will be listed on the student’s Tigeri Financial Aid Requirements page after the student’s FAFSA results are received.
