Applying to Scholarship Opportunities

Once the 20 questions on the General Application are answered, you are automatically matched to scholarships for which you meet the criteria.  No other action is needed for these scholarships. 

You will be presented with a list of UNT scholarship opportunities.  These scholarships may require additional information that is not included in the 20 question General Application. You are encouraged to click on each scholarship name to review the criteria.  We encourage you to apply for all scholarships where you meet the additional requirements.

Providing References

Not all scholarships require letters of recommendation.  If a recommendation is needed, you will be prompted to enter the individual’s full name and email address.  It is an expectation that you respectfully request permission to use an individual as a reference PRIOR to entering their contact information.  Once the contact information is entered, an email is immediately sent to the individual with instructions for completing the recommendation.  Please encourage a timely response from your reference.  You will not be able to view the submitted recommendation, only that it has been received.

Entering Essays

Not all scholarships require an essay. If an essay is needed, you will be prompted with the essay subject and text area in which to enter your essay.  We encourage you to use word processing tools to confirm that your essay is grammatically accurate (spelling and punctuation).  You may preview the content of your essay to ensure that no unusual formatting occurs after copy/paste from another program.

Imported UNT Information

Once your General Application is completed, your UNT personal, contact and academic information is imported from the UNT’s Enterprise Information System (EIS).  Please note: you cannot update the information on the application.   If you have concerns about the information in the imported fields, you must contact the appropriate cognizant authority to make any necessary updates (see below).
