Scholarships

For information about grants, scholarships, and fellowships not based solely on financial need, continuing students may contact their academic department and college. Generally, this aid is contingent upon merit (academic performance) or a combination of merit and other factors such as academic field of study, leadership ability, residence, and/or financial need.

The UNH Fellowships Office provides information, counsel, and editorial support to highly motivated students (undergraduates, graduate students, and UNH alumni) applying for national and international fellowships and scholarships.  The Office also assists faculty members who serve as mentors/references, and coordinates campus interviews and nominations.
