Scholarships & Grants


Staff Senate Scholarship

The Staff Senate Scholarship was established to foster a spirit of unity, pride and cooperation among staff members by recognizing the leadership role staff plays in the daily work of the university. This scholarship will be used to support university employees and their dependents seeking a degree at the university.  

The Staff Senate awards two scholarships each fall and spring semester. The amount of each scholarship is $400 and can be used for any educational expense the student may incur. All permanent SHRA and non-teaching EHRA employees (working a minimum of ¾ of the time) and their dependents are eligible and encouraged to apply. The employee must have been working for the university for a minimum of one year prior to the first day of the semester of the award. The recipient must have been accepted into UNCW and be pursuing a degree. Continuing students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5 to be eligible for award. The recipient shall be selected based on need and other information provided to the committee.
