You are welcome to apply for any UMHEF scholarship for which you are eligible. However, please note that while you may apply for more than one scholarship a year, qualified students will only be awarded one scholarship. To read about overall eligibility, visit our Students page.
Scholarship award funds are sent directly to your school AFTER we receive your Verification of Enrollment (form can be found here). If we receive your VOE by the October 1 deadline, you can expect funds to reach your school by November 15. Please note: these instructions will be included with your notification of scholarship.
We love letting students know that they've been chosen for an UMHEF scholarship! Depending on the number of applicants, which can sometimes increase processing time, we aim to notify recipients around the beginning of May.
It depends on the individual scholarship and school type, but applications for most of our scholarships must be submitted by March 1 each year. (Note: You must re-apply for a scholarship each year to be awarded for a new school year.) Additionally, you should typically be notified of a final outcome by May 1 via postal mail.
