UNCG Scholars Program
The UNCG Scholars Program recognizes and encourages exceptional academic ability and talent. The winners are among the most outstanding students at UNCG and their achievements enrich and enhance the University. Admitted students who are eligible for these scholarships will be invited by Undergraduate Admissions to apply through SpartanLink.
Approximately thirty renewable scholarships(ranging from $2,500 to full tuition, fees, room and board) are offered annually to entering freshmen. Only current high school seniors who are invited by Undergraduate Admissions are eligible to apply for these select scholarships. You must complete the UNCG Scholars Program application by Thursday, January 3, 2013. UNCG Scholars 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.
The Dean’s Scholars Program, a component of the UNCG Scholars Program, offers incoming first-year students four-year renewable scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. This program emphasizes academic achievement and is available to students in specific majors, such as Nursing, Education, Chemistry, Religious Studies, majors within the Bryan School of Business & Economics, and majors within the School of Human Environmental Science. Dean’s Scholars awards are renewable for up to four years of undergraduate study, as long as the student maintains a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 and remains in good academic standing with the University. Current high school seniors must be invited to apply through the UNCG Scholars Program. The individual scholarships in the Dean’s Scholars Program are listed in the academic departments that offer them and within the scholarship listing for the UNCG Scholars Program.
We also encourage you to consider applying to the Lloyd International Honors College, a program designed to enhance the undergraduate experience of exceptional students.
