Blue & Gold Scholarships (for high school seniors only)

UNCG Students

UNCG Blue & Gold Scholarships recognize and encourage exceptional academic ability and talent. Blue & Gold Scholarship winners are among the most outstanding students at UNCG and their achievements enrich and enhance the University. To be considered for UNCG Blue & Gold Scholarships, students must submit a completed application for admission to the university no later than Dec. 1. In addition, students who want consideration for these awards must submit the application essay. Students who meet these criteria will automatically be considered for the UNCG Blue & Gold Scholarships.

Approximately thirty renewable scholarships(ranging from $1,500 to full tuition, fees, room and board) are offered annually to entering freshmen. Blue & Gold Scholarship recipients are chosen primarily on the basis of superior scholastic and personal achievement and potential. Successful candidates generally present a minimum SAT score of 1200 (critical reading and math) or an ACT score of 27, and a minimum high school GPA of 3.5.

Awards are renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study. Student recipients must uphold the academic standards set for the awards (and satisfactory performance in an area of study, for awards restricted by discipline) in order for the awards to be renewed.

We also encourage you to consider applying to Lloyd International Honors College, which offers four years of academic enhancement to the undergraduate experience of exceptional students.
