The U Experience Scholarship

what it is

The U Experience Financial Need-Based Scholarship Fund is the first step in our vision to make the college experience accessible to everyone. It is designed to crowd-source resources to help deserving students with much to offer personally but little to contribute financially. Anyone can donate any amount, and we will use whatever we raise to support tuition for as many students as we can afford to.

how it works

Students who apply for the UE Scholarship will not be considered during the primary application process. Rather, they will be considered separately, after we’ve internally built a complete class. We will select scholarship applicants on a case-by-case basis, taking up to as many as the UE Scholarship Fund permits. We hope this will help us strengthen the socioeconomic diversity of our student body.

How to donate

Before accepting any donations, we’d like to get a sense of how much interest our scholarship fund will generate. We hope a lot.

If you’re interested in donating, please join our mailing list and let us know how much you intend to contribute. We’ll let you know when we’re accepting payments, so you can help make a difference for a few deserving students.
