Scholarships

To help students achieve their dreams

Students with the ability and desire to attend Pittsburg State University will have the opportunity to do so through scholarship support.

Students are our top priority so scholarships must be a top priority. Many students have the desire to attend college, but they don't have the financial means. Scholarships make it possible for many students to earn a college degree and realize their professional dreams. Scholarships also make it possible for Pittsburg State to recruit more students in a very competitive higher education marketplace.

Students who qualify for in-state tuition paid $6,508 in tuition and fees during the 2015-2016 academic year to attend Pittsburg State full-time.  It’s a great value, especially when you consider that we offer flat-rate tuition pricing which allows full-time students to take additional hours with no increased costs.

Thanks to our loyal alumni and friends, in FY 2015, Pittsburg State awarded more than $3 million in private scholarships. Although this is impressive compared to many state universities our size, we need to increase scholarship support if we are going to reach more students who struggle to pay for a higher education, especially as those costs continue to increase.
