Our Opportunities

Welcome to Brave ASSIST, UNC Pembroke’s scholarship application portal.

UNCP awards numerous scholarships each academic year through the fundraising efforts of the UNCP Foundation and the generosity of private donors. Scholarship award amounts vary and are often awarded based on several factors including, but not limited to, demonstrated academic success, financial need, and donor-specific criteria.

Auto-match Scholarships: All current and newly-admitted students are considered for auto-match scholarships based on information imported from their student file.

Apply-to Scholarships: These scholarships require additional questions or an essay to be eligible for award. After reviewing the scholarship description, please complete these additional requirements to be considered for these scholarships.

Terms Used
Award: The amount stated is for general information purposes and not a guarantee of what a student may receive if awarded. Actual award amounts can vary based on recipient eligibility, available funds, and other factors.
Deadline: The date by which students should complete any individual scholarship applications for apply-to scholarships to receive consideration.
Actions: You will be automatched with scholarships for which you meet the criteria. These scholarships indicate “None” under “Action” and require no additional information from you for consideration. A limited number of scholarships indicate “Apply” under “Action” and require individual applications for consideration.

New students should apply as soon as they are admitted. Students will be notified of scholarship decisions starting in May.
