Grants and Scholarships

You may qualify for more scholarships than you think. Southern's top 5 scholarships are renewable for up to four years when a student maintains a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. That makes investing in the Southern experience more affordable than ever.




  • Southern Adventist University scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted.
  • Scholarships are divided and distributed equally over the fall and winter semesters and are not applicable for summer sessions.
  • Scholarships and awards cannot exceed costs for tuition (for 12 to 16 hours), general fees, room rent, and a capped amount for books and food. Outside grants and subsidies are applied before Southern scholarships and awards. In addition, full tuition scholarships (freshman renewable academic and National Merit) combined with other Southern scholarships will not exceed the cost for tuition (12-16 hours) and the general fee only, and cannot be applied towards lab fee.
  • Scholarships listed here are available for full-time students taking 12 or more hours each semester at Southern's Collegedale campus.
  • Southern reserves the right to change or amend any of the scholarship policies at any time. Our full financial aid policy can be found in our online catalog.
