How to Apply for Scholarships

The University of North Texas offers various scholarship opportunities to help you finance your education. A scholarship is a financial award given to a student on the basis of academic achievement and promise. Many scholarships are awarded based on merit. However, some also take into account financial need. Scholarships do not have to be repaid.
