Scholarships

Each year the College of Humanities is pleased to offer scholarships to deserving students enrolled in disciplines across the College. These scholarships have been made possible by the generosity of alumni and donors who have demonstrated a long-standing interest in education and the Humanities.

Our college-wide scholarship applications open in Spring and are available on Scholarship Universe.

Scholarship Universe is a service provided by the UA Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) where University of Arizona students can get matched and apply for scholarships. Students will get matched based on their profiles to available COH Scholarships and other scholarships they may be eligible for.

Students looking to apply should click on the Student Login button on the Scholarship Universe webpage and sign-in with their NetID.

Please note: scholarship applications require the submission of supporting documents including letters of recommendation, academic information (extracurricular activities and awards), and a personal statement/essay.

Letter of recommendation should be from a faculty member, staff, or administrator and should talk about your academic standing, qualifications, and/or fit for the scholarship you are applying to.

For questions regarding Scholarship Universe or if you are experiencing technical difficulties, please submit a request through one of the feedback buttons from within the Scholarship Universe portal or submit a ticket through the Ask Aid portal by going to https://financialaid.arizona.edu/contact.
