If you have received a scholarship from an outside organization to attend UNO, please bring or send the check to the Office of Financial Support and Scholarships for processing. In most cases, UNO will set up the funding to post to your tuition account within a few days of receipt if the semester has already started. Funding that is received before the start of the semester will be posted at the beginning of the semester. In some cases, the recipient will need to pick up a scholarship check at the Student Accounts office after the start of the semester.
UNO is required to consider outside scholarship funding as a financial aid resource, so it is important that we are made aware of any additional funding that you expect to receive. You can report outside scholarship funding via mavlink. Find the FINANCES tab then select REPORT OTHER AID. You can now enter the award year and proceed to REPORT ADDITIONAL AID to notify the Financial Aid Office of the outside scholarships you expect to receive.
Here is a recommended list of resources to research scholarships beyond ones listed on this page:
- FastWeb - a search engine for outside scholarships
- CareerOneStop - a government website that allows you to search through more than 7,000 scholarships, fellowships, loans, and other financial aid opportunities
- Your employer or your parents' employers, professional associations, organizations related to field of interest, foundations, religious or community organizations, local businesses, or civic groups.
