The majority of the University applications are through an online application with a general

the scholarship application by logging into the UCDAccess Student Portal and
selecting “Apply for Scholarships” from the Scholarship drop down menu on the
left hand side of the page. Be sure
that you click on the “2016” link to access scholarships for the 2015-2016
academic year. Deadlines may vary for different scholarships on the
application. Please be sure to note these carefully. Graduate university scholarship information can be located on
the individual school or college website.
