Who are eligible for the scholarships?

Students who wouldn't be able to come to UCU without that support. An interdisciplinary education such as Liberal Arts and Sciences at UCU can only flourish when the student population represents a wide variety of social and economic backgrounds. The UCU determines annually who is eligible for a scholarship.
