SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS
Dr. Ralph W. Brauer Fellowship
The Dr. Ralph W. Brauer Fellowship was created through the estate of Dr. Brauer, a long tenured professor at UNCW. It is intended to provide financial support to one or more graduate students to assist with tuition and fees, books, publications or research travel as determined by the dean of the graduate school. A committee appointed by the dean recommends recipients and the amount to be awarded.
Alumni Association Scholarships.
The UNCW Alumni Association annually awards scholarships funded by alumni contributions. These scholarships are awarded to deserving UNCW current undergraduate and graduate students as well as incoming freshmen, incoming graduate and transfer students. All of the alumni scholarships are awarded based on academic merit.
Graduate School’s Awards for New Scholars.
A limited number of scholarships are available to students entering any of UNCW’s graduate programs for the first time. Students do not apply for these scholarships. Instead, nominations originate with the departments, which submit their recommendations to the dean of the Graduate School. Criteria include evidence of exceptional scholarship, normally strong GRE scores (or their equivalent) and an excellent undergraduate GPA
Jane Logan Lackey Fellowship
The Jane Logan Lackey Fellowship is allocated to promote diversity within the Graduate School. An undergraduate GPA of at least 3.25 in the applicant’s major is required.
James R. Leutze Merit Scholarships
The James R. Leutze Merit Scholarships were established by the UNCW Foundation in honor and recognition of Chancellor Emeritus Leutze’s outstanding thirteen-year service to the university. The fund provides a $9,000 scholarship for undergraduate and graduate students, who are known as Leutze Scholars. Recipients are selected based on documented academic ability; the undergraduate by the assistant vice chancellor for Admissions and the graduate student by the dean of the Graduate School. The scholarships may be renewable.
Sylvia and B. D. Schwartz Graduate Fellowship
The Sylvia and B. D. Schwartz Graduate Fellowship may be awarded to any graduate student enrolled in nine hours or more at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Recipients are determined by the Graduate School and receive an amount equal to in-state tuition and fees.
Lacy C. and Doris L. Sidbury Fellowship
The Lacy C. and Doris L. Sidbury Graduate Fellowship was established by Gwendolyn S. Solomon as a memorial to her parents. It is considered both a merit and need based fellowship subject to the criteria used by both the UNCW Graduate School and Financial Aid and Veterans Services Office.
