UNC to Celebrate Stampede with Scholarship Drawing

In honor of the Greeley Independence Stampede and UNC's long-standing partnership with Greeley, the university will hold a drawing for three transferable tuition scholarships covering the cost of new students' first semester of tuition.

UNC employees, their parents, members of their immediate family or household and current UNC students are not eligible for the drawing. Employees, their spouses/domestic partners and their dependent children are eligible for free tuition as part of the university's benefit program. Program details (PDF)

One scholarship will go to a prospective undergraduate student, one to a prospective graduate student and one to a prospective extended campus student through a random drawing of eligible participants who sign up at www.uncstampedescholarships.com before midnight on July 6. One entry per person per scholarship is allowed.

The drawing for the scholarships is being publicized on UNC's home page and social media sites as well as in the official Stampede program, on the event's website and social media pages, and through public address announcements and banners at various events in the Stampede arena.

Also, a 30-second video promoting UNC will be broadcast on the arena's big-screen TV during events.
