How to File for UCC Foundations Scholarships

  • Apply to UCC! Only admitted students are eligible for UCC Foundation Scholarships. Remember, admitting to UCC can take up to 2 business days. Current UCC students are eligible too! Of course, current students should be planning to continue studies at UCC next year.
  • Make sure you have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Declare UCC as your college of choice. Use school code 003222. Filling out the FAFSA will establish your need for financial help.
  • Be sure that you can log in to the Student Self Service website. Hint: Do this after you are admitted to UCC.
  • Be sure that you can log in and send emails from your Student Email. Student emails have the format 800xxxxx[at]student.umpqua[dot]edu. Hint: Do this after you are admitted to UCC.
  • Be prepared to write 150 word essays. Gather people who can proof your writing. Here are questions to work on:
    1. Describe your major and your long term professional goals. What stimulated your interest in your chosen major and what attributes do you possess that you feel would enhance your career?
    2. What does success look like to you? Share an example.
    3. Most UCC Scholarship funds are generously donated by individuals who have lived, worked, and been active in our area. Knowing this information, please tell us what a scholarship would mean to you.
    4. Describe a significant change, experience or hardship that has occurred in your life. How did you respond and what did you learn about yourself?
  • Choose two reliable people as your references and keep their email contact information available. Ask them NOW in advance. Remind them BEFORE the scholarship application deadline.
