Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Saint Leo University online scholarship system

Below is a comprehensive list of all privately-funded scholarships available to students with brief information about the scholarship selection criteria. To apply to scholarships, you must first sign in with your Saint Leo portal username and password.

What to Expect:

  • You will be presented with the general application after logging in. The general application is open from August 1 to June 30 of each academic year.
  • After completing and submitting the general application, you will be presented with “recommended” opportunities you may qualify for. Please review the scholarship selection criteria to determine your eligibility.
  • After completing each of these steps, you can see your application status on your dashboard. If your status is not listed as “submitted”, you have not fully completed your application.
  • If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will receive an email notification to your Saint Leo email account.

When browsing “All” scholarships, please note this is a list of all the privately-funded scholarship opportunities within the Saint Leo University scholarship system, not just those scholarships for which you may be receiving consideration. The number and award amount of the scholarships listed are for general purposes only and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive, if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.

Important Note:
Once you submit your general application, you will be auto-matched with scholarships for which you may qualify. The system automatically syncs with you student data file. You will NOT see your auto-matched scholarships.

Qualifying/Matching does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

For detailed information on how to use this system, please review Frequently Asked Questions or contact Frank Jackson at 352-588-8833 or frank.jackson@saintleo.edu.
