The University of North Florida Foundation has established endowments to fund scholarships for merit and need based students of UNF. The endowments come from the generosity of many individuals, alumni, local philanthropists, non profit organizations and corporations. Many dreams and goals are fulfilled along with enriching and life changing experiences made through their support.
As of July 2012, there are more than 250 endowments valued at $75 million. Over half of the endowments are designated as scholarships across the university. In June 2012, total paid scholarships were at $2 million to 872 students.
A list of scholarships can be found on the Scholarship Resources quick links.

"This experience has taught me to truly be myself and throw myself out there. Moving to a new city, the nation's capital no less, I was a little intimidated. I have done a lot of things in my life, created some notable memories, but I will not forget spending time with these children in the District."
Derek M. Davis, Junior, Health Administration

“Project GEO (Geotechnical Earth Outreach) was a highly interactive experience. The students' inquisitiveness encouraged all participants to learn during the labs.”

"I am extremely proud to say that I studied at the prestigious Cambridge University, the same University as John Milton, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Prince Charles. How many people can say that? My experience has heightened my curiousity about other cultures and areas of the world. I want to do more traveling and studying. Words cannot express what this opportunity has meant to me."
Carie M. Whitcomb, BA English 2008
"I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I have been given to begin as a researcher during my undergraduate years. Going to Washington DC to represent UNF out of 700 applicants across the nation was a truly wonderful experience. I am eager to attend graduate school and I aspire to one day be able to conduct my own research." Marissa R. Lovvorn, BS Psychology, April 2011
