Our Opportunities

The University of West Florida has many need and merit based scholarship opportunities available. Many of the scholarships listed in this section only require you to complete our general scholarship application. Please keep in mind this section lists all institutional scholarships available regardless if you are eligible or not.

After you complete the general scholarship application, you may be presented with “Recommended” opportunities for which you might be eligible. Some scholarships require that you apply for them individually as they need additional information to determine eligibility.

Please also review our external scholarships by clicking on “External” under “Opportunities” in the menu above.

If you have any questions concerning the scholarship application process, please email finaid@uwf.edu

Admitted and currently enrolled students: Sign in using your UWF ID and password to begin the scholarship application process.

Important: Scholarships with the word* “Apply” to their right (after you sign in) require additional information for you to be considered. Click “Apply” for details and complete the requirements if you are eligible for the scholarship.
