Available UCF Kinesiology Scholarships

We offer an array of scholarships for students in Kinesiology undergraduate and graduate programs. For all scholarships administered by UCF, students must apply through the A2O platform. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as applications become available, typically in the latter half of the spring term. Some scholarships in the A2O system are specifically for UCF Kinesiology students, while other scholarships are available through the college and the university. We encourage students to apply for all scholarships they qualify for.

Scholarship Impact

The Jeffrey D. Law Memorial Scholarship was established in 2019 by Ed and Julie Law, Jeff’s parents, and Matt Stock, a faculty member in the School of Kinesiology and Physical Therapy to honor Jeff’s legacy and to benefit future leaders in strength and conditioning.

Law was the first student that Stock ever advised as a professor. “Jeff definitely kept me on my toes,” Stock said. “He was constantly reading, and he knew his stuff. And if he didn’t know something, he would ask me. If he wasn’t satisfied with my answer, he would do some more reading and come back and educate me.”

Law loved the field of strength conditioning. This scholarship supports students who share that same passion and want to positively impact the lives of the athletes they work with. This scholarship is a way of extending Law’s passion through future generations of sport and exercise scholars.


Scholarship applications are only available online through the A2O portal. You will only see scholarships for which you meet the basic eligibility requirements.


Frequently Asked Questions

For all scholarships administered by UCF, students must apply through the A2O system. Typically scholarships are posted in the spring term and awarded in the following fall term. But sometimes scholarships are available “off cycle.” Please check A2O frequently for all scholarship opportunities.

Some scholarship applications may require you to upload a resume or an essay. Make sure all required documents are included. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Criteria varies for each scholarship. Some scholarships are need-based, others may give preference to those demonstrating financial need and others do not take financial need into consideration. All students are required to complete the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA). Graduate student scholarships may not require financial aid criteria.

Scholarships for students in the College of Health Professions and Sciences become available in early spring with applications due in late spring. Each scholarship can have its own unique deadlines. Students are encouraged to check A2O frequently.

All scholarship applicants will receive an email if a scholarship has been awarded. The email will include the name of the scholarship and the scholarship amount. Awardees can expect to receive the email in June.

Congratulations! First, you will need to promptly accept the award via myUCF. All scholarship funds will be deposited to your UCF student account (usually at the start of the fall term). All scholarship recipients are also required to write a professional, handwritten thank you note to the donor in appreciation of your scholarship award. Scholarship recipients are encouraged to attend the college’s annual scholarship celebration event held in the fall. Additional information will be provided when students are notified of their award.

Scholarship funding will be split equally in half to cover fall and spring semesters unless the student is graduating in December in which case, all funding will be applied to fall semester, per request. All scholarships will first apply to any remaining balance on tuition and fees. If there is no remaining balance, then students will receive a direct deposit or check for the remainder.

Scholarships are awarded for the entire academic year-fall & spring. If a student graduates in the fall, they will have to email the UCF Financial Aid Scholarship Department at sfascholarships@ucf.edu.

For any questions regarding scholarship disbursement or refunds, please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance to speak to an advisor.
