Southern Scholarship Foundation is a non-profit organization that awards affordable living opportunities to students who qualify. All applicants must have at least a 3.0 GPA and a demonstrated financial need.
Scholarship recipients live in a home-like setting with students who represent a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Each scholarship house maintains a drug-, alcohol-, and smoke-free environment, with quiet study hours. Head residents are assigned to each house to ensure that the daily operations run smoothly. Students work in a cooperative partnership to purchase and prepare meals and 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 and utilities. Each student contributes approximately $950 per semester. Once accepted, the scholarship is renewable as long as students demonstrate continued financial need, maintain the required GPA, and live cooperatively within the house.
Included on the application is a detailed list of all necessary application materials. Only complete application packets will be reviewed for acceptance. There is not a deadline for the application; however, early submission is encouraged, as spots do tend to fill quickly.
