Day of Pride Scholarship Applicants

Day of Pride Scholarships are awarded to outstanding Connecticut secondary school seniors from underserved backgrounds who have proven ability for success as demonstrated through UConn's holistic application review. In addition to a commitment to diversity and multiculturalism, demonstrated leadership, and contributions to their communities, applicants should have demonstrated financial need.

The selection process is competitive and the number of applications received greatly exceeds the number of available scholarships. Applicants may be considered for either a Nutmeg Scholarship or a Day of Pride Scholarship, not both. 

Application Instructions and Eligibility:


November 1, 2023 Deadline to complete either the Common Application or Apply Coalition with Scoir
November 8, 2023 Day of Pride Supplemental Application Deadline

After submitting the Common Application or applying Coalition on Scoir, applicants will receive an email within two days that provides instruction on how to access the applicant portal where the Day of Pride Supplemental Application is provided. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions must receive the Day of Pride Supplemental Application, and all required documents by November 8, 2023.

Access the Applicant Portal

Prior to accessing the applicant portal, students will need to activate their NetID and set their password, if they have not already done so. All NetID-related questions may be sent to UConn's Information Technology Services department by emailing or by calling (860) 486-4357.
