NEWCASTLE Scholarships

A scholarship can make your degree even more affordable.


Great news! Through the generosity of numerous corporations and foundations, plus special federal government appropriations, UNC maintains a robust program of scholarships made available to qualified students.

Scholarships are one of the many ways in which UNC removes obstacles from your path to achieving your education goals and improving your career opportunities. It’s part of our investment in the future of our students.

Available Scholarships for new students are limited to overseas students

The following scholarships are available for new UNC students, depending upon specific eligibility requirements for the particular scholarship. Students are eligible to apply for these scholarships during the enrollment process and up to 60 days after starting a degree program.

In addition to the scholarships on this page, there are a limited number of scholarships, not described on this page, available only to current students.
