Financial Assistance

Departments within the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy offer various types of financial assistance to students. To find out more, please contact the department you want to apply to.

There are two college-wide scholarship programs for students:

  • Undergraduates: Social Science Scholars is a competitive program for outstanding majors in the college. The selected students participate in a leadership seminar during the spring semester of their junior year preparing for research or service projects to be undertaken during the following summer and/or fall semesters. Social Science Scholars receive grants of up to $5,000 for approved travel and other expenses related to their projects, either in the U.S. or overseas. For more information, visit the program’s page here.

  • Graduate Students: Military veterans who are master’s degree students in the college can receive assistance through the Charles T. Haworth Graduate Scholarships for Student Veterans. Awards will be disbursed in the 2016-2017 academic year in the amount of $5000 per year (or $2500 for a single semester). Students must be engaged in full-time graduate study for a degree in the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy. Note that there are no tuition waivers attached to these awards at this time, and there is no work requirement attached to the award.

    Veteran students who are eligible and want to be considered for this award should submit their resume and a one-page cover letter that documents their record of military service and articulates how this award will further their graduate study at FSU. These materials should be sent via e-mail to Tonja Guilford at tguilford@fsu.edu no later than May 1 2017. Selections for the award will be made by the end of May, 2017.

In addition to departmental and college support, Florida State University offers a range of financial aid. More information is available at this link.

We are proud to note that students of the college have always been very well represented among winners of national awards and fellowships. For more information about these programs, visit the Office of National Fellowships. There are also a number of university-sponsored awards and grants available to currently enrolled students
