Report Private Scholarships
Students must report any scholarships from outside sources including their high school, community, civic, and professional associations and other programs.
Students should not report scholarships received from Florida Bright Futures, the University of Central Florida (UCF) colleges, departments, and alumni association using this form. These scholarships will be reported directly to the Office of Student Financial Assistance (SFA) by those respective areas.
Submit the “Report Private Scholarships” form within 10 days of receiving a non-UCF scholarship check or scholarship award notification/letter.

Failure to report scholarships from outside sources
Failure to report outside financial aid awards (i.e. scholarships) could result in reduction or cancellation of financial aid administered by Student Financial Assistance. Federal and state regulations state that a student cannot receive scholarships and other need-based financial aid in excess of their financial need. Regulations also state that the combined amount of a student’s aid cannot exceed their cost of attendance if the student also receives any institutional, federal, or state aid.
If you have questions regarding your financial aid award, please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance at (407) 823-2827, or by email at email@example.com.
