Please communicate to our office notice of outside scholarships you anticipate receiving. Include your UNCW student identification number on all information submitted. You may communicate the information by submitting the following:
- Outside Scholarship Notification Form,
- A copy of the award notification from the donor, or
- An e-mail to us that includes the name and amount of the scholarship.
Upon receiving the information, we will note the scholarship as anticipated funding and make any necessary adjustments to your financial aid package. Once the funds are received, they will be applied to your account. To ensure that the amount is applied to the fall and spring semester bills by the due date, please send the check prior to August 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring. Unless otherwise noted by the donor, the scholarship amount will be divided evenly between the fall and spring semesters. If you are not enrolled at UNCW during the spring semester, the remaining scholarship money will be returned to the donor. We will not send the money to another institution. Note that outside scholarship awards become a part of the total financial aid award package and your financial aid may be reduced. Financial aid award packages cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
