Undergraduate Funding Opportunities

UF Financial Aid Office

The University of Florida’s Office of Student Financial Affairs offers federal loans to all qualified undergraduate students. You will need to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for any federal loans through UF. The Financial Aid Office also uses the FAFSA form to assess students’ eligibility for small need-based grants ($2,000/year). These grant funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and are limited. To be considered for these grant funds, you should submit your FAFSA form as soon as possible after January 1 for the following academic year.
