Scholarships

 

Students may apply for College of Education and Human Services scholarships through UNF’s scholarship management system, AcademicWorks. This portal allows students to view eligible scholarships, apply online and manage the acceptance process. Please follow the steps below:

 

Step 1: Complete Data Sharing Consent Form

Each year, students must complete the data sharing consent form to be considered for any Foundation scholarship. This includes renewal of an existing scholarship. Once the form is complete, it takes 24 hours for student data to be updated in AcademicWorks.

 

To access and complete the form:

  • Click here
  • Log into myWings
  • Click on the Data Consent with UNF Foundation Scholarship link.
  • Fill out the form and click submit at the bottom.

 

Step 2:  Visit UNF AcademicWorks

Student may sign into the system using their UNF login and password and complete the general application. Updates on the status of an application can found under the ‘My Applications’ tab.

 It is important to note that student information is not immediately updated in the system once the data consent form is complete. Students will have access to AcademicWorks but all eligible scholarships will not appear until the following day.   

  • For questions regarding College of Education and Human Services scholarships, contact coehs.scholarships@unf.edu.
  • For questions regarding AcademicWorks, email foundationscholarships@unf.edu.

 An important note about Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP): Students are reviewed for Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) at the end of each term. Students who fall into SAP warning or suspension receive an email informing them of their SAP status. Students in SAP suspension may submit a SAP appeal to the University. Unless the appeal is submitted and approved, the student will not be eligible to receive a COEHS scholarship/fellowship; the appeal process should take place prior to applying for any scholarship awards. The SAP Appeal Forms and Instructions can be found on this One Stop page.

 

 Scholarship/Fellowship Thank You Letter Tips:

  • Make an impact: Your thank you letter is very important to the donor! It provides you with an opportunity to share your own personal story as well as a way to express your gratitude for the award.
  • Make it your own: Use the sample thank you letter template as a guide, but please share your own story and do not copy the wording in the example. The letter does not have to be long, but it should be heartfelt.
  • Write professionally: You want to make a good impression! Have a friend or family member read your letter and provide you revisions and feedback before submitting your letter to the Dean's Office. Letters that contain many writing and grammatical errors will be returned to the student for correction. This could delay getting your letter to the donor.
