Automatically matched scholarships: Once you complete the UNC Scholarship Application you will be matched with scholarships for which you immediately qualify – no further action is required. Qualifying does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.

Apply-To Scholarships: There are some scholarships that will need additional questions, essays or applications completed before you can qualify. These scholarships will be visible on your dashboard once your general application is complete. You may also view a list of the scholarships for which you may be eligible by choosing the “Recommended” option from the drop-down list under “Opportunities”. Qualifying does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.

Starts in mid-February and continues throughout the summer. You can check the status of the scholarship(s) you applied to on your applications/dashboard page.

February 1, New Freshman and Continuing Students
June 1, Graduate, International Students and Transfer Students

For UNC employees that are also students: Please be sure to login with your STUDENT ID and PASSWORD, and not your employee ID and password.

Check your applicant record after you submit, if blank you did not complete as a student.
