University Scholarships


East Carolina University has a variety of scholarships available to incoming freshmen, transfer students and existing students. Effective October 2014, the process for applying for scholarships on our campus changed. The university now utilizes an on-line application portal for most of the scholarships offered to both incoming and existing students.

Opportunities can be located by visiting the ECU On-line Scholarship Management System - ECUAward - at https://ecu.academicworks.com/. Applicants use their ECU credentials (Pirate ID and password) to gain access to the general scholarship application. Please note that the Honors College has a separate, invitation-only, process outside of the ECUAWard system. Instructions for using the portal, ECUAWard can be found at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/universityscholarships/externalscholarship.cfm.
