Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Coppin State University Private Donor Award scholarship portal!

Through the generosity of private donors committed to supporting education, numerous scholarships are awarded each year. Below is a comprehensive list of all privately funded scholarships available to degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students.

Application Process:

  • To access the General Application, click “Sign in” and use your Coppin student email and password to login.
  • Complete the General Application. The status of your application(s) should show “Submitted” once done. The system will automatically match you to all scholarships for which you are eligible based on the information you provide. You will NOT see your auto-match scholarships. Qualifying/Matching does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.
  • After completing and submitting the general application, you may be presented with “Recommended” opportunities for which you may qualify. Please complete any additional steps that must be taken to be considered for these awards.
  • That’s it. You’re done!

NOTE: Each applicant must complete a FASFA in order to be eligible to receive funds from the PDA program unless you are not eligible to receive federal financial aid.
NOTE: If “None” is listed under ACTIONS for a scholarship, once you have submitted your completed general application, no further action is required on your part to be considered for that scholarship.
NOTE: Should a letter of recommendation be required, simply provide the name and email address of your person of choice. An email notification will be sent to them with scholarship details and instructions for submitting the letter.

Notifications:
You will receive any award notifications via your student email address. You can also check on the status of your application by logging back into the system at any time. If selected to receive a scholarship, you must login into the system to accept your award.

Important Dates:

  • March 15: Scholarship system opens to accept applications.
  • May 31: Application deadline.

For more information on how to use this system, download our Frequently Asked Questions.

Private Donor Awards are scholarships funded by gifts given to the University and administered by the Coppin State University Development Foundation.
