Donor Scholarship Application

Howard University recognizes the essential support scholarships offer to the educational pursuits of our students. Because of this, the Office of Financial Aid is glad to announce we are now accepting donor scholarship applications for the 2024-2025 academic school year.

You only are required to complete and submit one application to be considered for multiple donor scholarships for which you may qualify. Students who are awarded the scholarship will be notified through their Bison Web email in the Fall.

In addition to submitting a donor scholarship application, priority consideration will be given to students who complete the following:

  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application is for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents.
  • International students are not required should submit the International Student Financial Aid Application (ISFAA) for better chances at a donor scholarship.
  • Create a Handshake Profile.
  • Must be in Good Social Standing according to the Student Handbook which will be verified by the Office of Student Affairs.

It is the goal of the Office of Financial Aid to offer you the assistance you need to complete your education at Howard University. If we can be of any additional help, please do not hesitate to let us know.
