Welcome to the Office of University Scholarships

The goal of the Office of University Scholarships is to provide students and their families with information on both internal and external scholarship opportunities. Scholarships are gifts of money that do not require repayment.

Scholarships usually recognize special achievements in academics, talent, and leadership. Some scholarships may also require that students demonstrate financial need. Financial need will be determined by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  FAFSA applications for the 2017-2018 academic year can be filed (using 2015 tax data) starting October 1, 2016.

Scholarships can come from a variety of sources. Scholarships may be awarded by the Office of University Scholarships or by the individual colleges and departments on our campus. There are scholarship opportunities for incoming freshmen, transfer students, and students currently enrolled at the University.

East Carolina University has many scholarships that have been made available through the generous donations of alumni and friends of the University. Scholarship eligibility, criteria, and amounts may change at any time without prior notice.

We are proud to award students that are interested in continuing their education at East Carolina University. We hope that all students will grow and succeed in both personal and academic endeavors while at our University.
