The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences is dedicated to helping students to achieve their greatest potential in reaching their academic goals. Annually, the school awards nearly $300,000 in scholarships and fellowships for new and returning students. Based on merit and other criteria, a considerable amount of SFWS students receive financial assistance each year.
Through Auburn University's Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) online system, students can conveniently view available scholarships they may be eligible to receive, complete scholarship applications, accept awards, and more. Students are only required to complete the AUSOM application once each academic year. Students should expect scholarship awards between October and April.
To keep students on track for financial assistance, Auburn has created a convenient checklist of scholarship consideration as an incoming freshman, transfer student, or current student. Deadlines change each year, so we recommend that students check this information frequently.
Cost of attendance is a term defined by the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) Section 472 and represents the average cost to attend a college or university for the fall and spring semesters of one academic year. Review tuition and cost calculators.
The FAFSA is the only form a student is required to complete to be considered for student assistance from any of the Title IV, HEA programs except for information needed to ensure the student’s eligibility for such assistance (e.g., information needed to complete verification or to demonstrate compliance with the student eligibility provisions of the HEA and the regulations). Additional information, if requested, will be listed on the student’s Tiger I Financial Aid Requirements page after the student’s FAFSA results are received.
