Outside Designated Scholarships
Since outside scholarships are awarded by agencies outside of UAFS, we do not have any information unless the student or the awarding agency provides that information to us.
Some organizations require verification of enrollment before they will disburse funds. You may get your enrollment verification by logging on to your My.UAFS student account.
If you are expecting a scholarship from an outside donor, we will apply the scholarship as ESTIMATED FUNDS (this does not include state scholarships from ADHE) to your account only if you provide an Award Notification Letter. Send your Awad Notification Letter to the Financial Aid Office at email@example.com.
Tribal Scholarships Exception
We will apply all Tribal Scholarships (Cherokee, Choctaw, etc.) as ESTIMATED FUNDS from an Award Notification Letter, and those will remain on your account until the actual check arrives.
Outside Scholarship Opportunities
Outside scholarships are typically based on merit, achievement, performance, or some unique personal attribute. We encourage you to speak with everyone you know to ask about outside scholarship opportunities. Some agencies that typically offer scholarships include local businesses, parents’ employers, civic organizations, and churches. You can also utilize free online searches to look for outside scholarship opportunities.
