Scholarships for Transfer Students

Approximately 1/3 of UNI students are transfer students. We’re excited that you’re interested in being part of the Panther Family!

Admissions Scholarships (for students entering Fall 2020)

These scholarships are awarded at the time of admissions and do not require an application. Admissions scholarships can be stacked within the award. For example, a student could receive multiple Admissions Based Scholarships if they are eligible for each of them.

All scholarships require continuous, full-time enrollment for renewal, along with a college cumulative GPA of 2.5.

UNI Scholarship Application

The UNI Scholarship Application is yet another way for students to be considered for scholarships.  This streamlined application allows students to apply for hundreds of scholarships within one application. The UNI Scholarship Application is open every July 1st and has a priority of January 15th ever year.

Important Notes:

  • Students can still complete the application following the priority deadline.  Consideration of late applications would be done in the event that scholarships are still available.  

  • Scholarship selection is competitive; not all applicants will receive a scholarship. 

  • Scholarships require full-time enrollment and maintaining specific grade point requirements. 

  • The UNI Scholarship Application allows both current and incoming students to apply for scholarships available in specific majors and other University departments. Incoming students must apply to UNI before they are eligible to apply for scholarships. Many additional scholarships are awarded at the time of admission. 

  • The UNI Scholarship Directory is also a helpful tool designed to assist students in searching for scholarships.
