General Scholarship Application

scholarships.mst.edu

AcademicWorks makes it easy to apply for scholarships quickly online at scholarships.mst.edu.

 

It's as simple as one, two, three.
  1. Login at scholarships.mst.edu with your Joe’SS username and password.
    (You must have been admitted to the university and let one business day elapse prior to logging in, and you must have already activated your S&T email account.)

  2. Fill out the general scholarship application.
    The general scholarship application will search our database of awards and recommend scholarships you may be eligible to apply for. Some you will be automatically entered into the applicant pool, others you may need to answer additional questions.

  3. Continue to check the system as new scholarships become available periodically.
    Also browse our “external” scholarship list that provides convenient direct links to outside scholarship websites, make sure to use the "search" option to narrow your search by major, level in school, etc. as the system does not "recommend" specific external scholarships.
