New Scholarship Portal for Students Launches

Students interested in applying for scholarships now have an easier way to do so.

The new NinerScholars Portal gives students access to apply for more than 500 scholarship opportunities offered by colleges, departments, programs, and offices at UNC Charlotte with one application, through one online system.

Mark Walter, Director of the University Scholarship Office, spearheaded the launch of this new system. "There’s no question that students will benefit from the functionality of the NinerScholars Portal. In the past, if students wanted to apply for several scholarships, they would have had to search multiple websites to find opportunities they qualified for, then submit separate applications and documents to each department offering the scholarship. Now, they just enter their information once, and the NinerScholars Portal matches their profile to all the scholarships for which they are eligible."
