Scholarships

Over 70% of UNCW students rely on some type of financial aid. Scholarships help UNCW to recruit and retain high-ability students, regardless of their financial situation. As a result, we are able to diversify our student body and create a richer campus experience. UNCW currently awards more than 650 privately funded scholarships, but in order to compete with the best universities in the nation, we need more academic, merit and need-based support.

 

From annual scholarships that honor a loved one to endowed scholarships that will benefit academic programs in perpetuity, your gift to scholarships during the challenge will make a significant impact.
