2019-2020 UAFS Foundation Scholarship Hub and Resource Engine

Numa Lion for Lion's Share.

The UAFS Foundation is proud to introduce our new online scholarship application system called LION’S SHARE, powered by AcademicWorks software. Our scholarships are possible because LIONS SHARE: Generous donors share their resources for a variety of scholarships for eligible students.  


LION’S SHARE has many useful online features and benefits. The user friendly site allows students to search for scholarships for which they are eligible, then review the requirements, make an application, and accept awards.  Please review “Getting Started” and begin your application.


The LION’S SHARE link should only be used to apply for Foundation scholarships, not university scholarships.


  • Lion's Share is UAFS Foundation's online Scholarship Hub and Resource Engine powered by AcademicWorks. UAFS students can search for and apply to scholarships with just a few simple steps.
  • These scholarships are offered through the UAFS Foundation because of the generosity of private donors. These awards are separate from those offered through the UAFS Financial Aid Office.

Who can apply?

  • All UAFS students are encouraged to apply, but currently most scholarship opportunities are available to sophomore level students and above.
  • All Lion's Share scholarships are very competitive. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee that you will be awarded.

When do I apply?
