Blue & Gold Scholarships

UNCG offers academically talented incoming freshmen prestigious, merit-based scholarships that range in value and can include full tuition, fees, room, and board. There is no secondary application process for these scholarships, but to be considered, students must complete the application process for admission to the university no later than Dec. 1.

Departmental Scholarships

There may be an opportunity to apply for and receive a departmental scholarship as a student at UNCG. (The majority of departmental scholarships are awarded to current UNCG students.) Scholarships vary depending on the department, and we strongly advise students to contact their major of interest for more details and how to apply.

External Scholarships

There are numerous scholarship opportunities that are not affiliated with UNCG. We strongly encourage students to explore as many alternate opportunities as possible, including those offered in your local community. We also encourage students to work closely with their high school guidance department to identify scholarships for which students may be eligible. To start an external search, please visit
