UAA Scholarship Information
Already submitted your UAOnline scholarship application? Here's what to do next:
Don't forget that some scholarships require supplemental information in addition to the UAOnline application. Use the tabs on the left side of this page to view a complete list of UAA scholarships by the College you belong to and don't forget to check through the UAA General & Misc. Scholarships to view scholarships that all students, regardless of degree program, may be eligible to apply for. Although there is only one main, scholarship application, scholarship titles followed by an asterisk (*) require some form of supplemental, additional information.
Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to increase your chances of receiving a scholarship. There are two reasons why completing the FAFSA is important. Some scholarships require that student demonstrate "financial need" to receive an award. What does it meant to demonstrate financial need? Financial need is the difference between annual college expenses and a determination of what a family can afford to contribute toward those costs. So don't skip filling out the FAFSA and applying for "need based" scholarships just because you and your family don't qualify for financial aid. Demonstrating "financial need" and being eligible for grants are not the same thing. The second reason why filling out the FAFSA is important is because but it provides biographical information that can be used to help identify eligible applicants for some scholarships.
First time UAA students must have applied for admission by February 15th. You must also submit a partial high school transcript (final high school transcripts are typically required for Admission purposes upon graduation) on file in order to evaluate your GPA and determine whether you meet the GPA requirements for individual scholarships.
