As a Furman student, there are a number of scholarships that you can pursue to fund your education. These types of aid are gifts, meaning you do not have to repay them after graduation.

We offer a number of scholarships to students who demonstrate a strong ability to succeed based on their academic achievements, commitment to the community, passion for leading, or exemplary talents. Furman’s scholarships recognize those students who show the potential and promise to make an impact in Furman’s community.
