Students at UNI Commencement

You deserve
an affordable
education.

Worried about the cost of college? We don’t blame you. That’s why we’ve created new scholarships available to all in-state, incoming freshmen.

If you meet certain academic benchmarks, you can earn between $1,000 to $3,500 every year. That’s the Panther Impact Award. If you’re part of a traditionally underrepresented population, you could earn an additional $1,000 to $2,000 every year. That’s the “Unifying Through Excellence and Diversity” (UNI-TED) Scholarship.

And you don’t even have to apply for these scholarships. All you have to do is apply to UNI. If you’re enrolled here, you’re automatically considered.
