Diversity Scholarships

General Requirements

Southeastern’s Specialized Scholarships are designated scholarships based on specific eligibility criteria, which also require answers to additional application questions. Per a student’s eligibility, these questions may be included on the Standard Financial Aid Application. These committee-determined scholarships are open to current and prospective students and are based on a variety of parameters and the availability of funds.

Students interested in any of Southeastern’s Specialized Scholarships should complete the Standard Financial Aid Application during the appropriate application periods with exception of the Southeastern Women’s Fellowship Scholarship. That application is provided in its description below.
