UA Scholarship Tips

  • Eligibility is based primarily on high school academic records and ACT/SAT test scores.
  • Some scholarships require a demonstrated history of leadership, community service or other personal factors. The Supplemental Information Form (optional) can be submitted for that purpose.
  • 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.
