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!
