The 2016-17 UCC Foundation Scholarship process will open August 22, 2016, and close on September 7, 2016. Recipients will be notified by email by the end of September.
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.
The UCC Foundation generally observes a limit of $4,000 per student, per academic year for Foundation scholarships. However, some exceptions may apply.
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.
