I'm attending UCF for the fall 2013 term.
I wanted to know if anyone knows of any scholarships/grants I could get either now or very soon. If you know anything about financial help please let me know as well!!!

    In state or out of state?

    In state-

    National Merit ->Automatically granted to any National Merit finalists. No other way to get it. ~$64,000 over 4 years + automatic acceptance to honors + a free laptop from the campus store.

    Provost Scholarship ->Highest non-national merit scholarship. ~$24,000 over 4 years

    Pegasus Gold/Silver/Bronze -> Range between $5,000 and $10,000 (I think) over 4 years.

    Grant wise, you can get Pell Grant, depending on how much money your family makes (up to $5,500 a year) and other grants that will automatically be given when your financial aid packet comes out.


    All of these are given to you automatically. No application necessary, you just have to wait.

    If you check your student center on myucf, they've given out scholarships already. Just click on "scholarship status". I don't know if they've notified everyone getting a scholarship who's been accepted already, but I myself and someof my friends have gotten pegasus awards in the past few days.
