Thank you to all of the students that applied for UCC Foundation Scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year. All scholarship notification emails have been sent out.
Before starting your UCC Foundation Scholarship application, read these important instructions.
Scholarships are monetary gifts presented to students who meet conditions defined by the person or group giving the money. Many organizations, agencies, and businesses offer scholarships. There are many online sources of information about available scholarships, including UCC Foundation opportunities.
Scholarships offer a good way to help pay for your education. Thousands of scholarships are available each year, and every one of them has its own unique requirements. You must search for scholarships that match your own skills, interests, heritage, and field of study. Also, be sure to keep track of your academic achievements, work experience, and extracurricular activities. Many scholarships are based on your involvement in certain activities and/or your association with particular groups.
Many Scholarship opportunities require the completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Be sure to file your application early! You can start applying at 9 p.m. Dec. 31.
