How to get Started


UCF awards Think 30 scholarships to students who complete 30 credit hours a year. To date, nearly $150,000 has been awarded to support student scholarships. Students are encouraged to check back regularly for any new updates on scholarship funding available for the upcoming academic year.

Update (as of 12/1/22):

Thank you for taking an interest in the Think 30 scholarship. Unfortunately, Think 30 does not have the resources available to award scholarships in the Fall 2023 semester based on the 2022-2023 academic year credits. We hope you will consider applying in the future when funding becomes available.
