Knights of Distinction and Integrative Learning Scholarship Opportunity
What’s Next: Integrative Learning Scholarship
The first is time sensitive: The Quality Enhancement Plan is offering the What’s Next: Integrative Learning Scholarship for the 2017-18 Academic Year. This scholarship awards up to $1,000 for the fall 2017 semester for students who demonstrate excellence in integrative learning (not to exceed the financial cost of attendance). Nomination for the award requires a personal statement from the student and a supporting nomination email from a UCF faculty or staff person familiar with the student’s accomplishments (Advisors included). It also requires a UCF GPA of 3.0 (along with a few other conditions relative to their financial aid award, the flyer has the full details). This is a great opportunity for students for this Fall 2017 semester, but the deadline is coming up pretty soon (July 1st). There are 37 total awards available, and it is our goal to issue at least two for each undergraduate-facing college.

Knights of Distinction Program
The Knights of Distinction program is now live! The program is designed to help students “connect the dots” between what they learn in their courses and their experiences beyond the classroom. It provides a framework for students to plan effectively, to seek out meaningful, high-impact learning experiences, and to leverage those experiences to prepare for what’s next beyond UCF. Students who complete the program gain the “Graduated with Distinction” designation on their transcript and gain opportunities for exclusive workshops and networking opportunities as they complete the program.
