Welcome to Scholarships and Financial Aid: We’re Here to Help

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid provides financial assistance, resources, and services to students at Kennesaw State University.

We believe students from all economic backgrounds should have the opportunity to attend KSU. Whether you attend our Kennesaw or Marietta campuses, you’re in the right place to explore the many scholarship, grant, loan and work-study opportunities available that help make paying for college as affordable as possible.

The information provided on this website will help answer your questions and concerns regarding financial aid. If you need additional information, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.


The Moving Forward Fund was created to provide financial support to keep students in school and on the path toward earning their degrees through financial hardship. It was launched with the assistance of the KSU Foundation and the President’s Parliament, a special group of highly engaged supporters bound by a shared commitment to advance the University’s mission.

Funding requests will be based on need and assist with food and housing, transportation, payments for tuition, books and other education-based needs. Awards will be capped at $1,500 each term and available based on funding. Students should have exhausted all grants, scholarships, and loans available to them before completing this application and must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress. If you are unsure if you have resources available that you have not utilized please check the financial aid tab on Owl Express or email finaid@kennesaw.edu.

The Moving Forward Application is closed and will reopen January 4, 2021 to assist students with Spring 2021 needs.

Please note, individual circumstances and the volume of student requests will impact processing.
