In addition to scholarship awards made by HSU, numerous foundations, organizations and individuals offer
scholarships. Click on the link
and use the FIND window to locate all scholarships of interest for (e.g.) teachers, nurses, social services, etc. If you
will receive scholarships from sources outside HSU, contact our office as soon as possible so proper credit may
be applied to your financial aid award package. An Outside Scholarship Report form is available for this purpose
on our Financial Aid website. Your donor may require you to provide enrollment verification before
they send funds. Also, inform your donor that scholarship checks should be made payable to Hardin-Simmons
