UA Scholarship Tips
- Generally, students who receive scholarships should have full-time enrollment.
- Most scholarships are granted on an annual basis prior to the fall semester.
- Although most scholarships do not require students to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), for full consideration for all types of aid you should complete a FAFSA form no later than March 1.
- You may also wish to contact your college and/or academic department for possible scholarship opportunities and application requirements.
Graduate students are encouraged to apply for assistantships. Positions are available as teaching assistants in the English Department.
