A one-stop website, Huskies Scholarships is accepting applications through March 7 for more than 530 scholarships.
Huskies Scholarships made more than 1,020 awards in 2018. More than $1.1 million was awarded to students for fall 2018 and spring 2019.
In addition to academic, merit-based scholarships, the website has scholarships endowed by friends and alumni that support students with particular majors and career interests. Huskies Scholarships also has access to nearly 60 external scholarship opportunities and 17 national scholarship-search tools.
Students who complete the Huskies Scholarships general application are auto-matched to specific scholarships.
They may also be invited to apply to other scholarships they may qualify for if they submit additional information such as essays, transcripts, references and the like.
Parents and community members can view and search scholarships without signing-in.
Students signing-in with a Star ID can:
- View and search scholarships
- Apply and accept scholarships
- Submit thank-you letters to donors
The application, review and awards process is managed by the Foundation and the Financial Aid Office. Faculty scholarship committees review and score qualified applications, select recipients and offer scholarships.
Most of the training and support for review committees is provided by staff members at the Foundation and Financial Aid Office.
Newly admitted students receive scholarships through the Office of Admissions system and may also apply for scholarships offered in Huskies Scholarships.
