Our Opportunities

Welcome to A2O (Access to Opportunities): Where Scholarship Opportunities Present Themselves. To get started, please sign in with your NID and Password.

First-Time Users:
Once you have logged in, you will be asked to complete a short general application. After the application is completed, you will be matched with scholarships for which you immediately qualify. No further action is required for those scholarships. However, you may qualify for additional scholarship opportunities if you are able to meet certain criteria, which varies depending on the scholarship offered.

All Users:
To browse scholarships awarded through the Office of Student Financial Assistance, select “Ours” under “Opportunities.” To browse private scholarships, select “External” under “Opportunities.” Since these lists are not filtered based on your credentials, please carefully read the descriptions and only apply for those scholarships for which you meet the basic criteria. To view scholarship opportunities filtered according to your credentials, click “*Recommended”* under “Opportunities” above. (Note: This option will not be available until you have logged in and filled out your general application.) If “Recommended” you must meet qualifications for opportunities. Please review criteria to determine if further action is needed. Please note: You must be admitted to receive “Recommended” Opportunities.

Additional scholarship opportunities may become available after the General Scholarship Application has been completed. It is your responsibility to check A2O frequently for additional scholarship opportunities that may become available.

The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.
