Undergraduate Admissions


Merit Scholarships

UConn has a series of renewable merit scholarships for high school seniors with a record of high academic achievement and leadership. Students participating in the Guaranteed Admission Program also have a unique opportunity available through the President-to-President Scholarship.

First-year applicants are automatically considered for most merit scholarships administered by the University of Connecticut with the exception of the Nutmeg and Day of Pride scholarships, which require a school counselor nomination. UConn Promise Grants are reserved for Hartford, New Haven, and Waterbury Promise Scholars.

Offers of merit scholarships are generally awarded for fall semester entry and are made possible in part through the generous support of donors to the UConn Foundation.
