Scholarships for Transfer Students

A few things to keep in mind when applying for a UNF Transfer Scholarship:

 

  • Many scholarships are only available to students beginning in the Summer or Fall terms.
  • Applicants must be an incoming transfer student; current UNF students are not eligible to apply.
  • Scholarship application decisions will be released no later than mid-July and scholarships are awarded beginning in the Fall term of each year.
  • Students must submit a scholarship application, which is available through myWings.  In order to submit a scholarship application, you must have a completed admissions application on file.  If you have just submitted your admissions application, you will normally be able to submit a scholarship application on the following business day, but it might take up to three business days for your account to be created.  Click here for a step-by-step tutorial for submitting your scholarship application.   
  • Each Transfer scholarship has its own deadline.  

 

Tip: Because funds are limited, students are encouraged to submit their FAFSA by March 1st.
