How will I Pay for College?

ECU Scholarship Opportunities

We are happy you are interested in continuing your education at East Central University. We offer many different scholarship opportunities from academic scholarships, to departmental, to scholarships through the Foundation Office to help with offset the cost.     

Academic scholarship selection at ECU is a competitive process. Meeting the minimum requirements for consideration does not ensure selection. Your completed application must be postmarked no later than February 1. Freshman scholarship recipients will be notified of their awards. Renewal of awards is based upon successful completion of at least 12 hours at ECU during each academic semester (fall and spring terms) and the continued availability of funds.
