Southern Scholarship Foundation Essays

On By In 1

University Foundation Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, financial need, and/or other specifications set by donors.

All students may be eligible for various types of financial aid, including scholarships. Current FGCU students, and prospective students who have submitted an Admissions application and have been assigned a University Identification Number (UIN), should submit an online FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application.

The FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application is an annual process and we encourage all students to apply each year by January 1st.

Although completing a FAFSA form annually is highly recommended, it is not a requirement in order to complete the FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application.

Students should also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually by our January 1st priority deadline to be considered for need-based scholarships and other Financial Aid opportunities. Applicants fill out the FAFSA online. Step-by-step instructions to help you complete the application are provided online. Students must complete a 2018-2019 FAFSA for the academic year which begins in the Fall of 2018.  The FAFSA application is completed online at http://www.fafsa.gov/

The scholarship application is closed for the 2018-2019 award year. The application will reopen this fall for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Note: the FGCU Foundation Scholarship Application allows you to be considered for all scholarships you are eligible to receive. For a list of all FGCU Foundation Scholarships, please click here.

Southern Scholarship Foundation (SSF) offers rent-free scholarship housing for qualified students demonstrating academic achievement (with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA), financial need (as identified on the FAFSA), and good character. Scholarship recipients obtain an "Education for Life" by living in a home-like setting with students representing a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Each scholarship house maintains an environment that is drug, alcohol, and smoke free with quiet study hours. Students work in a cooperative partnership to purchase and prepare meals, and also assume responsibility for all household tasks. Students do not pay rent, but are responsible for their fair share of the basic household expenses such as food, utilities, and internet. Each student contributes approximately $950 per semester and saves up to an estimated $12,000 each year in living expenses.This includes 4 hot home cooked meals Monday-Thursday and food for the residents to prepare on their own for breakfast, lunch & snacks. It is not just housing for the residents – it is their home away from home!

The Johnson Scholarship is a competitively awarded program available to undergraduate students with disabilities who enroll in Florida Gulf Coast University and contingent upon annual funding by the Theodore R. and Vivian M. Johnson Foundation and matching funding by the Florida Legislature.

Please visit the Office of Adaptive Services for scholarships opportunites for students with disabilities: https://www2.fgcu.edu/Adaptive/

The Frost Scholarship Programme (Florida) funds current students of the State University System of Florida (SUSF) to study one-year, full-time master’s courses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (‘STEM’ subjects) at the University of Oxford.

Let us know if an FGCU Eagle won an outside scholarship from your organization that was posted on our website. We would love to share their story and congratulate your recipient!

All students are encouraged to seek outside sources of scholarship assistance available from many community organizations. The Office of Financial Aid at FGCU continually receives information from sources outside the university. As a service to scholarship applicants, we include the scholarship applications on our website as printable forms or so that the applicant can print the application, complete it, and submit it to the appropriate scholarship source. Some scholarship opportunities supply direct links to their website.

Scholarship applications from outside sources include oppotunities for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The Drive to Learn Scholarship - Deadline: July 1, annually
  • Deadline: July 1, annually
  • Award: $1,000
  • Applicants must be enrolled full time at a four-year university, graduate program, community college, or trade school (at least 12 undergraduate units or 6-9 graduate units) located in the continental United States.
  • U.S citizens and non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply
    In 750-1000 words, prepare a written response that addresses ONE of the following prompts:
    • Some of the best life-lessons are the ones we learn from our mistakes. Share a lesson you learned when facing the consequences of bad decision-making as a driver or a passenger. Describe the situation and explain how it led to a valuable learning experience.
    • Learning how to drive is a different experience for everyone because some may find it easy to accomplish while others struggle with the challenge. Describe your experience. What did it take for you to become a confident driver? What valuable lesson(s) did you learn--about yourself, others, or life in general--during or after the process?
    • You may have noticed that people tend to change over time. For example, you're probably not the same person you were as a freshman in high school. Think about the driver you were when you first obtained your driver's license. Maybe you were a young and reckless driver or perhaps a timid and careful driver. Now think about the driver you are today. Describe how you have changed as a driver. Does this transformation reflect changes in other aspects of your life (i.e. driving more carefully after a near-death experience, driving aggressively after losing your job, etc.)? If so, explain. Would you consider this transformation to your benefit or do you see it as a potential problem? Why?
    • Although the vast majority of the country's population drives on a regular basis, there are still many people who do not. Are you one of them? What's keeping you from getting behind the wheel? Maybe the city you live in is not commuter-friendly, maybe you cannot afford to buy a car, or perhaps you simply choose not to drive. Describe your situation. Is this an obstacle for you? Why or why not? How has not driving influenced you and your life?
