Faculty/Staff Textbook Scholarship Program

Attention: In coordination with the new legeistlative change to the Tuition Waiver Program, the UNCW Textbook Scholarship Program can now be used for THREE courses per academic year. (The summer session Tuition Benefit will remain the same at one course per session.)

The Textbook Scholarship Program allows eligible UNCW employees to receive required textbook(s) from the UNCW Bookstore for undergraduate or graduate classes taken by tuition benefit or fee waiver. The program permits the use of required textbook(s) for three courses per academic year, and one course for each summer session. The benefit is for used textbooks – new textbooks are provided only if used textbooks are not available.

(The Textbook Scholarship covers all textbook(s) only for the class or classes listed on the approved tuition benefit or fee waiver form.)
