Scholarship Application FAQs

Yes, if you are a returning undergraduate student with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and will be enrolled in an Arts & Sciences degree program as of fall semester 2022.

The application is for undergraduate students only.  Graduate students, please contact your School for information about available graduate scholarships.

If you will be an incoming first-year student you will be considered (under a different scholarship process) provided you meet the requirement of completing your application for admission by the December 1st deadline.  Incoming first-year students will be contacted directly by the scholarship committee if a scholarship is awarded under the aforementioned process.

Once the application is submitted, you will not be able to return and edit your application. Please make sure to accurately fill in all required information.

If after completing/submitting your online scholarship application you need to make a substantial/substantive change to your scholarship application (i.e., one that you believe could change the outcome of our review), please contact:

The Scholarship Committee will notify you by UC email if you have received a scholarship beginning in the late spring. Students who do not receive a scholarship will be notified shortly thereafter.

Unfortunately, information regarding decisions cannot be given by phone.

Scholarship award notices and all associated future scholarship correspondence will be sent to the student’s official UC email account only.  If a different email address is preferred, the student should work within the UC email client to make sure his/her UC mail is forwarding to the desired account.  The Scholarship Committee is not responsible for misdirected email.  

Scholarships are limited and highly competitive; however, the Scholarship Committee believes in rewarding as many of our deserving students as possible. Most awards are given for high academic merit, but additional achievements, current and future goals, volunteer experience, financial need, and other criteria are taken into consideration.

Most scholarships are non-renewable; you must re-apply for most Arts & Sciences scholarships every year.
