Navigating the UNCW Scholarship Application & Deadlines

To apply for scholarships at UNCW, applicants must be an admitted student for the upcoming academic term with access to the SeaNet student portal. Using their assigned student ID number students may access the features within the student portal, including the scholarship application on the Scholarships & Financial Aid Tab.

For consideration of scholarships within the Biology and Marine Biology Department, students must submit their application by March 1 to be reviewed by the Biology and Marine Biology Departmental Scholarship Committee.

To apply, students must at least complete the specific section of the application containing the Biology and Marine Biology Scholarship submission questions. If a student wants to be considered for all scholarships university wide they must also complete the entire general application.

IMPORTANT: Students who wish to be considered for need based scholarships should also fill out a FAFSA form by March 1.
