Scholarships and Loans

You have many options to help you when it’s time to invest in your education. Shippensburg University offers five types of aid: scholarships, federal and state grants, federal and alternative loans, work-study programs and veterans benefits.

To help guide you through the process, we offer our Financial Aid Road Map for 2020-2021  or 2021-2022 (PDF). It is a publication we hope will help answer your questions about financial aid and assist with your college enrollment decision.

If you need help or have any questions, the Financial Aid Office is here for you. Don't hesitate to contact us.


The Shippensburg University Foundation scholarships give students the opportunity to pursue their dreams, and our institutional scholarships provide additional support. There are a variety of additional scholarships you can apply for.

Loans help you (and your family) pay for your college education. The federal government offers several different loan programs, and you can also apply for education loans via private alternative lenders such as banks as well as through an alumni program here at Ship.
