Brain Bowl Scholarship F.A.Q.
How are the Brain Bowl scholarships awarded?
Brain Bowl scholarships are awarded by Undergraduate Admissions to first place winners of the Annual Brain Bowl Competition as identified by the Florida Education Fund. First place winners must apply, be offered admission to and enroll at UCF.
How long will I receive the Brain Bowl scholarship?
A maximum of 8 semesters or until graduation, whichever is less. You will not receive your scholarship after earning your first bachelor’s degree, even if all eight semesters have not been used.
Can I use my Brain Bowl scholarship in the summer?
No, the scholarship is not available for use during the summer semester. It is to be used during the fall and spring semesters only.
If I need to take time off from my studies at UCF, will I retain the Brain Bowl scholarship?
Possibly. You must submit a Scholarship Appeal Form and letter stating the reason(s) that you need the time away from UCF. The appeal must be submitted prior to the term(s) that you plan to be away. The UCF Scholarship Committee will review your request and render a decision. If you leave UCF without asking for the time off, you will not be reinstated to the scholarship program upon your return. Extenuating circumstances are the exception.
Can I Co-op or intern and remain on this scholarship?
Yes. If you want to Co-Op or intern, you must let us know in writing which term you plan to Co-Op or intern prior to that term. We will defer your scholarship until you return as a full-time student the following term.
