How to apply:
1. Students must login to the secured site of UAOnline, click on Financial Aid, and then find the Scholarships link. Read and follow the instructions. This is the general scholarship application for all UAA Scholarships.
The main deadline for submission of the electronic application is February 15th prior to the academic year for which you are seeking scholarships. Scholarships that go unawarded will be offered at a later date.
Please Note: You will not be considered for scholarships unless you have also applied for admissions (prior to the February 15th deadline) to the appropriate degree program. You can apply for admissions electronically via UAOnline.
2. Most scholarships only require the general electronic application. You do not choose which scholarships you are applying for. By submitting the electronic application, the computer system searches for the scholarships you are qualified for based on the information in the system (i.e. academic major, class standing, GPA, etc.).
3. It is the student's responsibility to research which scholarships they are qualified for, or interested in, on the UAA Scholarship website. Submit any supplemental information requested (i.e. specific essays, letters of recommendation, etc.).
Please Note: Failure to submit required supplemental information will result in the disqualification of your scholarship application. Scholarships that require supplemental information will have an asterisk (*) next to the title of the scholarship.
4. To qualify for scholarships which are based on financial need, the applicant must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by February 15th. If you do not complete the FAFSA, you will not be considered for need-based scholarships. If a scholarship is based on financial need it will be noted in the scholarship qualifications. (International students do not need to complete the FAFSA.)
