- Scholarship Description
The University of North Carolina is proud to offer academic scholarships to a small number outstanding students each year. All students who are admitted to the University of North Carolina are automatically considered for these scholarships; no additional application materials are necessary. Some academic scholarships take financial need into consideration. Others are completely need-blind. For fullest consideration for academic scholarships, we recommend submitting your FAFSA by January 10.
The University of North Carolina Blue Sky Scholarship is awarded to students from middle-income North Carolina families and is based on outstanding academic achievement and a demonstrated, strong sense of responsibility. In addition to their scholarship, recipients also receive a $2,500 Carolina Works work-study offer and a one-time $2,500 enrichment opportunity grant to use for study abroad, internships or research. Students who apply and submit a FAFSA along with their application to UNC (by the Early Action or Regular Decision deadline) will be considered for this renewable award.
