Integrative Learning Scholarship

When you graduate from the University of Central Florida, your academic transcript—the courses you took and the grades you earned—will only be one chapter in your story. The rest of the story will be in the experiences you gain and the activities you participate in outside the classroom.

We encourage students to explore opportunities to build real-world experience at UCF and choose the experiences that will connect to their coursework and to their future goals. In order to support this goal, the Quality Enhancement Plan is offering the What’s Next: Integrative Learning Scholarship for the 2017-18 Academic Year. This scholarship awards up to $1,000 for the fall 2017 semester for students who demonstrate excellence in integrative learning (not to exceed the financial cost of attendance).

Scholarship Eligibility:

This scholarship is available for undergraduate students who demonstrate excellence in high-impact, integrative learning experiences such as: internships or co-op, peer mentoring, study abroad, undergraduate research, service learning, living learning community, experiential learning, independent study, leadership position in a registered student organization (RSO), or other experiences (please detail in your personal statement).

Applicants must have a UCF GPA of 3.0 at application and must be actively enrolled in the semester they are receiving the scholarship.

  • Students do not need to show financial need to apply for the scholarships; however, all federal, state, and institutional financial aid rules and regulations apply for the purpose of awarding and disbursement of these funds.
  • Students with a DACA status are ineligible for financial aid.
  • Transient coursework does not satisfy as hours for purposes of this scholarship.

Application Requirements:

1) Nomination email from a UCF faculty or staff person familiar with the student’s accomplishments, including the student’s name, Knights Mail, PID, and a brief statement of support.

2) A personal statement from the student, sent via their Knights Mail account, of no more than 300 words describing how their experiences in and beyond the classroom connect and how these together have shaped their academic career.


Application Deadline:

Nominations and applications for the What’s Next: Integrative Learning Scholarship are due by email to no later than July 1, 2017. Nomination letters and applications may arrive separately; however no incomplete files will be considered. At least two scholarships are available for each undergraduate college. Recipients will be notified in late July.
