Graduates outside Old North (2019)


Application Prep

 The new UCO Foundation scholarship portal is now open and will remain open for approximately one month. The deadline to apply for the 2020-2021 academic year is Friday, Feb. 7, 2020. 

A few things you can do to prepare now include:

  1. Once your grades from Fall 2019 are posted, grab a copy of your unofficial transcript off UCONNECT. You can save it as a pdf.  If you have a hold, the scholarship portal will guide you through an acceptable way to navigate a transcript upload.
  2. Start writing a few sample essay responses.  Common essays include:
    • Writing about your financial need (How will this scholarship help you?)
    • Why did you choose the degree you are pursuing, and how will it help you reach your goals?
    • What was your most memorable leadership experience and why?
  3.  Prepare your resume. Even if you aren't specifically asked to attach a resume, the process will help you fill in several blanks.

This year we will give out more than $1 million in scholarship funding, but you have to apply.  Don't miss the application window!
