UCO Scholarship Portal

UCO’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) partnered with the Office of Advancement and Enrollment and Student Success to bring a new scholarship portal experience to Central students, which now is open.

The new UCO Scholarship Portal, powered by NextGen Scholarship Manager, brings improved, student-centered features to the campus community. Students can search available Foundation-specific scholarships in the portal. Students complete an initial qualifying application – or profile – to determine which scholarships they are eligible.  Next, students complete any additional requirements for qualifying scholarships and submit their application.

In order to bring this new portal to light, the initial phase has successfully been implemented replacing existing functions for Foundation-specific scholarships this semester.  Foundation and OIT began collaboration in September 2019 to replace the existing functions of the portal, meeting application deadlines for UCO Foundation-specific scholarships for this semester.  The next phase includes facilitating institutional scholarships managed by Enrollment and Student Success for the Fall 2020 semester.  Discussions and collaboration will continue with the colleges regarding their application processes for scholarships and waivers and the benefits of the Scholarship Manager application to streamline the overall scholarship application for students.

The portal for all Spring 2020 Foundation scholarships closes at 5 p.m. Feb. 7, 2020.
