Blue & Gold Scholarships

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 by Undergraduate Admissions.

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.

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.
