Start Your Search for Scholarship Opportunities


Welcome to the Morehouse College Scholarship Portal. The College offers scholarships that are open to all students and others that are restricted to those within a specific major or field of study. Scholarships may be recommended to you at different times throughout the academic year as new opportunities become available, so we suggest visiting the Morehouse College Scholarship Portal regularly. Please make note of all scholarship deadlines, as late submissions will not be accepted.

Below you will find a listing of scholarship opportunities available for the 2021-2022 academic year. Each scholarship opportunity will contain eligibility details.

To be eligible for scholarships at the College, you must:
• Be a newly admitted or currently enrolled Morehouse student
• Meet the criteria established by the scholarship donors
• Submit a General Application and any required supplemental information required of the scholarship opportunity. We strongly encourage that you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to maximize available scholarship opportunities.
• Maintain GPA, community service hours, or meet other conditions mandated by the award

To sign into the Scholarship Portal, click the “Sign In” button located on the top right side of this page. Log in with your Morehouse MyPortal ID and password. Once you’ve signed in, carefully complete the General Application. Once submitted, the General Application’s auto-match feature will ensure that you are considered for most available scholarship opportunities. Some individual scholarships may require supplemental information. You can view and apply for those individual scholarships after completing the General Application by visiting “Recommended” from the “Opportunities” tab.

Note: Any award amount listed with a scholarship is for general information purposes only. Actual award amounts vary based on the students’ individual eligibility, funds available, and other factors.

For any question or more information, please contact Student Financial Services at studentfinancialservices@morehouse.edu or phone at (470) 639-0959.

For optimal compatibility, please access the Portal using the Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari web browser.
