Pathways to Success: UNF Foundation Competitive Financial Need-Based Scholarships

The University of North Florida believes that every qualified student should have access to a college education regardless of their ability to pay. One of the ways in which the University provides such assistance is through the Pathways to Success Scholarship Program.

 

A number of individual donors and companies in the community have generously provided our students with scholarship support through the UNF Foundation. We seek to assist students in achieving their dreams of earning a bachelor’s degree while developing leadership and growth through Transformational Learning Opportunities (TLOs) including community service, study abroad, and undergraduate research.

 

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.

 

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Scholarships are only available to first-time-in-college or transfer students.
  • Current UNF students are not eligible to apply for these scholarships.
  • Students may be required to schedule a scholarship interview.  You will be given the date and time for your committee interview.
  • Scholarship offers will be e-mailed to the student's UNF e-mail account.

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.
 

The scholarship qualifications listed below reflect anticipated standards and award values for the 2016 incoming freshman class. Minimum qualifications and award amounts are subject to change.
