The University Scholarship Office is one of the newest student resources at UNC Charlotte, and we're asking for the help of the faculty to raise awareness among students of scholarship opportunities and other resources.
As the cost of education continues to rise and students struggle to reduce the amount of loans that will accompany their diploma, it is critical that students are aware of all financial resources early in their academic career. The Scholarship Office provides multiple scholarship resources such as the University's new central scholarship system, the NinerScholars Portal, external scholarship lists, and general best practices for identifying scholarship funding.
The University Scholarship Office believes the best way to communicate and build a rapport with students is in-person. They hope that you will allow them to give a 3-5-minute presentation in your class in order to share these resources with your students. During this brief session, they'll answer questions from students, provide relevant literature, and share contact information for their office.
A schedule is currently being set up for attending classes for the next 30 days between the hours of 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM, Monday through Thursday. Please use the following link to select a time that you would like the Scholarship Office to attend your class. The scheduling application operates in 10-minute intervals, so please select the most accurate time slot for your class. If you have trouble scheduling your class on our application, please contact the University Scholarship Office directly to add you to their calendar manually. If your class is outside of the 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM window, they will be happy to make a different arrangement.

Thank you for considering this offer to present these scholarship opportunities in your class. The Scholarship Office hopes that the resources provided by their office will help to increase academic engagement and commitment from your students.
