UNCG’s New Scholarship Platform Puts Funding Options at Spartan Fingertips

Posted on April 18, 2024

Students smile as they huddle around a laptop.

UNC Greensboro’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships has announced a new search platform that will revolutionize how students search for scholarships.  


Welcome to the Universe 

ScholarshipUniverse matches students with nearly a thousand scholarships in UNCG’s portfolio, as well as thousands of external opportunities. With the completion of a simple questionnaire, students are given links to scholarships they qualify for, so they’ll never miss an opportunity.  

This platform not only simplifies the search process for students, but it is also the portal through which faculty and staff members review and award scholarships. So, ScholarshipUniverse represents an upgrade in efficient scholarship management for schools and for students.  

One-Stop Shopping for Scholarships 

Searching for and applying for scholarships is easier than ever before. Students can log in now and complete the questionnaire to immediately see funding that they qualify for.  

“In most cases, students will not have to complete separate applications for different scholarships,” says Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management Joel Lee.  “This new system allows the university to match students directly with available funds, eliminating time-consuming application processes for most Spartans.” 

Just as the Common App simplified how students apply to colleges, ScholarshipUniverse’s dashboard consolidates documents and essays to keep students’ applications organized. Through the dashboard, students can track scholarships they match to, what scholarships they’ve been offered, and which ones they’ve accepted, all in one user-friendly space. 

In this transparent process, UNCG scholarship reviewers use smart ranking systems to quickly assess all qualifying students and determine awards based on numerous factors from financial need to academic performance to degree progress. And when scholarships are granted, notifications also come through the platform, so students can easily calculate how much aid they can count on.  

Funding is Only a Click Away 

Funds are waiting for students to apply for them at ScholarshipUniverse, but don’t take our word for it. See for yourself today. Cruising through “the universe” is the perfect pastime while you wait for responses from your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
