Your hub for scholarhips: Kennard-Washington Hall


Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Scholarships at The University of Southern Mississippi. Our office was established to provide a hub for scholarship information and support prospective and current undergraduate students at The University of Southern Mississippi.  Our main objectives are to:

  • Create a hub of scholarship information and financial resources to help with college affordability.    
  • Provide customer service, accuracy, and efficiency when awarding incoming and current scholarships.
  • Practice fair and consistent policies when monitoring and maintaining current scholarship awards.

More than 80 percent of the Southern Miss student population receives some form of financial assistance, so we understand the importance of acquiring scholarships and financial aid.  It’s an exciting time to be a Golden Eagle, and we encourage you to research all of your opportunities for funding. Paying for college can sometimes be stressful, so let us guide you through the general scholarship process at Southern Miss. Once you have a good understanding of your finances, then you can focus on what’s truly important...studying for exams and making connections on campus.
Southern Miss…To The Top!
