Undergraduate Admissions

Nutmeg Scholarship Applicants

The Nutmeg Scholarship honors the exceptional accomplishments of Connecticut secondary school seniors. Applicants should demonstrate exceptional academic ability, have performed notable service to school and community, and possess the qualities of a good citizen and leader.

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 Nutmeg 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 Nutmeg Supplemental Application is provided. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions must receive the Nutmeg Supplemental Form, 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.
