Scholarship Information

In conjunction with the UWF Office of Undergraduate Admissions, the Kugelman Honors Program offers scholarship awards to help UWF's highest-achieving students thrive.

The University of West Florida and the Kugelman Honors Program offer numerous scholarships for high-achieving students. Many students invited to join the Kugelman Honors Program four-year pathway are awarded a UWF Admissions Scholarship (Academic Excellence, Nautilus, or Argonaut). For more information on these awards, visit UWF's Undergraduate Admissions Freshman Scholarships page.

In addition to the scholarships mentioned above, the Kugelman Honors Program provides two scholarships to all students in the Honors Program, pending the availability of funds. These scholarships are the John C. Pace, Jr. Honors Scholarship to support high-impact learning experiences and the Honors Tuition Scholarship to defray tuition costs while students are conducting research for their Honors thesis. 

The Kugelman Honors Program also offers several additional scholarships on a limited or competitive basis. Honors students are eligible to apply for most scholarships after completing two semesters.
