UNF Thomas G. Carpenter Library

A scholarship resource binder is maintained in the 2nd floor reference section for your convenience. Additionally, our library offers an online publication listing sources of information on scholarships, fellowships, grants and loans. Visit the Library Reference Department for information and resources.

 

UNF Colleges and Academic Departments

Before your junior year, you may want to find out if there are any departmental scholarships, waivers, or fellowships offered by each of UNF’s 5 colleges.

 

Internet The Internet can be a remarkable scholarship search tool! Remember that many scams operate on the internet, so if a site charges a fee, research it carefully. Better yet, try one of the many free services and information sites available online.

 

Federal Student Aid Info Center

FSAIC can help answer your questions about need-based federal student aid and the application process for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Their hotline is 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243 or TTY 1-800-730-8913). You may also apply online at no cost by filing a FAFSA or by visiting the US Department of Education’s website. Having the FAFSA on file with UNF is vital to our ability to offer student aid and/or scholarships. Most federal student aid is awarded based on financial need rather than scholastic achievement. Most grants, for instance, are geared toward low-income students. You do not need to show financial need to receive certain federal loans, however.

 

State of Florida Financial Aid The Florida Department of Education offers a wide variety of student aid. You can apply for State of Florida Financial Aid programs by completing the online application. These include awards, such as the Florida Bright Futures Scholarships, grants like the Florida Student Assistance Grants, and professional programs such as the Critical Teacher Shortage Tuition Reimbursement Program. Remember to pay attention to individual program application deadlines. For additional information, call 1-888-827-2004.

 

Federal Sources of Financial Aid

 

Other Agencies Student aid could be available from foundations, community organizations, and organizations related to your field of interest such as the American Medical Association or American Bar Association. Remember to look into possible awards through religious organizations, local businesses, and civic groups as well. Also, check with your employer (or your parents’ employers) to see whether they award scholarships or have tuition payment plans.
