UNCG offers academically talented incoming freshmen prestigious scholarships that range in value from $2,500 to full tuition, fees, room, and board.

The UNCG Guarantee program helps eligible North Carolina students graduate with little or no debt. Qualifying students receive a financial aid package, academic support, and opportunities for enrollment in the Lloyd International Honors College and study abroad.

UNCG offers scholarship assistance to admitted adult students age 24 and over who are pursuing an undergraduate degree on at least a half-time basis. To apply for this scholarship opportunity, please submit the Adult Scholarship Application no later than July 1.
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.
For additional information about the above UNCG scholarships and other opportunities, visit fia.uncg.edu/scholarships. Please note: To be eligible for a scholarship, students must properly go through the application process.
There are numerous scholarship opportunities which are not affiliated with UNCG. We strongly encourage students to explore as many alternate opportunities as possible. 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 fia.uncg.edu/searches.
NOTE: Applying for UNCG or external scholarships does not guarantee awarding of a scholarship.
