Scholarships and Grants
There is not one resource for scholarships.
- Financial Aid Office and UDC Foundation may have opportunities for you.
- Thoroughly research scholarship opportunities with government, public and private businesses, employers (both your employer and your family member’s employer), stores, schools, foundations, religious organizations, fraternities and sororities among others.
- Adhere to deadline dates and don’t wait for a deadline to apply.
- File the FAFSA annually. Many scholarships are need based and require the FAFSA.
- Consider your network of references (both professional and personal) and don’t rely on the same one or two people. Continue to build your network.
