UNF Foundation Competitive Merit-Based Scholarships

Incoming students can apply for one of our competitive merit-based scholarships listed below. To be considered for these competitive scholarships, you must be admitted to UNF for summer or fall 2017 and provide the below:  

Résumé

One letter of recommendation (from a teacher, employer, counselor, etc.)

Personal statement – a one-page narrative designed to give the reviewers a picture of you as an individual. The statement should address three items:

What is most appealing to you about UNF?

What details of your life (your history, experiences, etc.) set you apart from other candidates?

How has your work and/or volunteer experience shaped you?

All documents must be submitted as e-mail attachments to pathways@unf.edu. Your application will only be considered after these items have been received. If you have additional questions about these requirements, please contact pathways@unf.edu. 


For PRIORITY consideration, submit all required scholarship materials by October 15, 2016. After this date, we will continue to review scholarship documents on a funds-available basis.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Scholarships are only available to first-time-in-college or transfer students.
  • Current students are not eligible to receive these scholarships.
  • Students may be required to schedule a scholarship interview.  You will be given the date and time for your committee interview.
  • Students are only eligible to receive one UNF merit-based scholarship. However, students who have already received an automatic scholarship (like the Presidential Scholarship) can submit documents to be considered for a possible scholarship upgrade.
  • Scholarship offers will be e-mailed to the student’s UNF e-mail account.
  • The rSAT minimum scores listed in the criteria below reflect SAT scores from March 2016 or after. The SAT minimum scores reflect SAT scores prior to March 2016.

The scholarship qualifications listed below reflect anticipated standards and award values for the 2017-2018 incoming class. Minimum qualifications and award amounts are subject to change.
