UHS Competitive Award

The University in the High School Program offers competitive awards to incoming freshmen enrolled in the University at Albany’s UHS program. This $1,000 award is renewable for up to three consecutive academic years, contingent upon successful completion of the freshman year, for the potential total of $4,000. It is a non-tuition award, meaning it is allocated to pay for fees, room and board expenses, books and other personal expenses.

Students interested in applying for a University in the High School Competitive Award must apply for Early Action admission to UAlbany and can access the application through their UAlbany applicant portal.

The Early Action application deadline has been extended from November 15th to December 1st. Early Action applicants will now need to submit their award application materials by December 15th (instead of December 1st).
