Our Opportunities

Welcome to BRAVE ASSIST, UNC Pembroke’s scholarship application portal for Undergraduate and Graduate students.

What to Expect:

  • You will be presented with the general scholarship application after logging in.
  • After completing and submitting the general scholarship application, you will be presented with any additional department/scholarship specific questions/essays, if applicable. Not all departments/scholarships have additional questions or essays.
  • After submitting each of these steps, you will receive a confirmation email from fa@uncp.edu. If you do not receive this email, then you have not completed the application process and will not be considered for applicable scholarships.

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

When browsing “ALL” scholarships, please note that this is a list of all the scholarship opportunities within BRAVE ASSIST, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. The number and award amount of the scholarships listed are for general purposes only and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility, funds available and other factors.
