The University uses a central application system called FS4U (fsu.academicworks.com). You can access the application system after you are issued an FSU username and login credentials. If you are a current FSU student, use your student username and login information to access the FS4U system.
Typically the application window is held in January-February of each spring term. Unless otherwise noted, recipients are notified in the summer; scholarship funds disburse for the Fall term.
Both applications are located in the FS4U system.
The General Application uses the information you provide to match you with scholarships offered by other FSU departments. All FSU students have access to submit a General Application.
The CSW Application uses the information you provide to match you with scholarships offered by the College of Social Work. Only students enrolled in CSW academic programs are eligible to apply. The application is available to complete in January-February each year.

Please note – scholarships offered by our Field Education Program and by the CSW International
Program currently follow different award timelines and application procedures.
The C. Aaron McNeece Field Education Scholarship: Typically, this scholarship’s application
window is held at the same time as the CSW Application window. After submitting the General
Application, the C. Aaron McNeece Field Scholarship will show as a “recommended opportunity.”
Complete and submit the apply-to questions listed. You do not need to submit a CSW application to
access this scholarship in the “recommended opportunities” section of FS4U. Generally, this
scholarship disburses for Summer, Fall, and Spring terms.
CSW International Programs and Study Abroad Scholarships: Please contact the Director or the
staff assistant for CSW International Programs. Currently, these scholarships do not use FS4U to
collect applications and can disburse for Summer, Fall, and Spring terms. Eligibility is contingent on
participation in a CSW International Program (study abroad, international field placements).
