SFA’s Scholarship Search Engine

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

To better help students secure the necessary funding to pursue their educational goals at the University of Florida, the Office for Student Financial Affairs (SFA) has launched a comprehensive Scholarship Search Engine, at www.sfa.ufl.edu/search.

The Search Engine is a database of both college-awarded and non-UF aid available at the University of Florida. It is the most current, up-to-date listing of UF scholarships. We get our information directly from the colleges and departments at UF each year as we prepare our Gator Aid Handbook.

The Scholarship Search Engine allows users to search in three ways:

  • Simple, text-based search, which works pretty much like a Google search.
  • Guided Search, which allows users to search by a number of criteria, such as college, major, deadline, degree, required GPA, and required class standing.
  • Advanced Search, which allows users to choose multiple criteria and search within the results.

Users can also save scholarship searches, as well as email the results to themselves or a friend.

Using RSS, students can subscribe to the “feed” from any academic unit (college or department) and their web browser or feed aggregator will alert them automatically when listings are updated or added.

We hope the Scholarship Search Engine will be a useful resource for students (and staff) at the University of Florida.
