Scholarships for transfer students

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

  • Students must submit a scholarship application to be considered for these awards. See below for instructions.

  • Most scholarships are only available to students admitted to the summer or fall semesters.

  • Applicants must be incoming transfer students who have completed an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree; current UNF students are not eligible to apply.

  • Scholarship application decisions will be released by May each year and scholarships are awarded beginning in the fall term of each year.

  • In order to be eligible for a scholarship, you must be admitted to UNF.

  • Deadlines vary; please note the deadlines for each scholarship below.

  • Eligibility does not guarantee an award.

Tip: Because funds are limited, students are encouraged to submit the scholarship application and the FAFSA by February 14.
