Prospective students now have a little more time to apply for several academic scholarships offered by Southeast Missouri State University. The Office of Admissions extended the March 1 scholarship deadline to June 1.

The award categories extended to the new June 1 deadline are:

  • Copper Dome Scholarship ($1,000-$3,000)
  • Residence Life Leadership Award ($1,000)

The university has two upcoming visit events.
