Tips on Applying for Scholarships

  • Read the regulations
    They tell you what the Selection Committee will be looking for and whether you are eligible.
  • Start your application early
    You can save and come back to it later if you need to do more research.

  • Talk to your referees
    It is important they know to expect a request from UC (which will have a deadline).

  • Submit your application by the deadline
    This date is not flexible.

  • Sell yourself
    Scholarships are highly competitive, so make the most of the word limit in open ended questions. This is an opportunity to tell us why you deserve the scholarship.

  • Apply for all scholarships you are eligible for
    Many scholarships allow you to hold more than one at a time.
