Step 3. Complete the BASE Application and Apply for Scholarships

BASE is the first step to matching you with opportunities at SLU. You are only required to complete this once each academic year. Remember, other opportunities may appear in your applicant portal once you have submitted the BASE App. Be sure to check those out and apply! Your application is valid for one academic year, which means you only apply once for the fall and spring.


The following is a list of helpful hints useful for students when applying for scholarships.

  • Pay attention to the deadlines. Some opportunities require transcripts and/or letters of reference. Allow time to assemble all required information. It is never recommended to wait until the deadline date to complete an application.
  • If asked to write an essay, use accurate grammar, spelling, and punctuation. It might be a good idea to have someone proofread your work.
  • Carefully follow the instructions on the scholarship application and review your responses before submitting.
