How to Apply

Students interested in applying for the UAV Scholarship Award should fill out an application, send their college transcript, write an essay on this year’s military topic, and email a high-quality digital picture. To be eligible for a UAV scholarship, applicants must be descendants of or related to a Ukrainian American Veteran. Students should be full-time undergraduate college students enrolled in a degree program or attending an accredited trade school or institution that has a degree program.  Students may apply during their senior year in high school; college attendance will be verified before awards are given in the fall. Additionally, full-time or part-time graduate students can apply. Graduate students need not supply high school or undergraduate college records only current graduate class schedule. Undergraduates can apply 3 times and graduate students once. Applications are accepted all year round, but the deadline is August 31 of each year. Additionally, undergraduate students may re-apply for a scholarship award each year (up to 4 years).

Applications for the scholarship should be sent to UAV National Scholarship Officer.
