Scholarships at Eastern

 

Scholarships are our greatest need and a special way for you to make a direct impact on a student’s life. What can be more impactful than making an exceptional education possible for deserving students?

Your support of scholarships helps Eastern close the gap between a student’s financial aid package and financial need, which in turn allows the university to attract and support the most talented and well-deserving undergraduate students.  As the value of an Eastern degree has increased over the years, so has its cost. Eastern is committed to keeping the doors of opportunity open and making education affordable to all who qualify.
