Welcome to the ADHD Clinic at UNCG

Military-Affiliated Services

A resource for future, current, and past UNCG military-affiliated students

Scholarships, Grants, and Loans

The question of how to pay for a college education is one that almost everyone faces at some point in their lives.  Fortunately, there are many options for you as a military-affiliated student.  In addition to the possibility of a Department of Veterans Affairs or Department of Defense entitlement like the GI Bill or Tuition Assistance, there are many scholarships out there as well as UNC Greensboro’s Financial Aid programs.

Sometimes you may be eligible for more than one financial program that conflicts with each other and you must choose which one you to utilize.  Often times, however, you may use multiple benefits at once.  For example, you can use a GI Bill program, scholarships from businesses or veteran organizations, and UNC Greensboro’s financial aid programs all at the same time.  When in doubt about what you qualify for or what you can use together, don’t be afraid to ask!

Scholarships and search tools are listed for informational purposes only, this is not an endorsement.  

 Scholarships/Grants/Loans

There are many local and national scholarships or grants available to military or military family member students!  This list is not all-inclusive, nor should it be considered an endorsement of any one organization over another.  These are scholarships or grants that we have been made aware of and wish to pass along to you.  Please contact a member of the Veterans Resource Center team if you need further assistance pursuing options to fund your education.
