UNF Presidential Scholarship Program  

Award amount: Up to $24,000

Minimum requirements: 3.8 high school GPA


The University of North Florida is committed to helping students invest in their college education. Incoming first-year students who exhibit outstanding academic achievements are considered automatically for the Presidential Scholarship. Awards range up to $24,000 over four years for students who have at least a 3.8 weighted grade point average and corresponding test scores on the ACT or SAT.


The Presidential Scholarship amount you may be eligible for is based on a combination of your test score and recalculated high school grade point average. The higher your GPA and test scores, the more likely you will be to receive a higher amount. Scholarships are provided on a funds-available basis, so apply for admission early. No separate scholarship application is required. The priority deadline for all scholarships is October 15*. Students who have been admitted to UNF by this deadline will receive priority consideration.


*Due to COVID-19, the priority deadline for 2021-2022 scholarships is now January 15, 2021. We encourage students to also submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by Nov. 30, 2020 to maximize their opportunity for additional federal, state and institutional aid.
