Find Scholarships

Looking for a scholarship or fellowship? Are you in the right place?

UConn’s Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships (ONSF) works with high-achieving current UConn students or alumni who may be eligible for certain externally funded competitive undergraduate or graduate scholarships & fellowships. Strong candidates possess a high GPA (usually 3.5 or above), have research experience, and/or demonstrate extracurricular involvement and leadership.

ONSF targets primarily merit-based competitions that not only award financial support but also garner prestige and can help promising students establish themselves on an academic, research, or other professional career path.

Are you a prospective or incoming student?

Until you matriculate, you should seek scholarship and funding advice from the Office of Admissions and the Office of Student Financial Aid Services. Feel free to browse our site, however, to think ahead about applying for a prestigious award once you are enrolled!

Are you looking for need-based, state, regional, or “smaller” scholarships?

The Office of Student Financial Aid Services will provide general assistance to students seeking scholarships to supplement their aid packages, including tips on using free search engines and finding a scholarship application that’s right for you.
