The 2015-16 UCC Foundation Scholarship application is CLOSED for the 2015-16 academic year. Thank you to all those that applied. Applications are currently being reviewed.
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 as close to January 1 as possible.
