OASES offers scholarships to nontraditional students to encourage and support their academic success.  For many of the scholarships, preference will be given to first-degree undergraduate students. A number of the scholarships have provisions to benefit persons from particular backgrounds. Efforts will be made to match recipients with specific criteria set forth by scholarship donors. Award amounts may vary annually. Awards are determined by the Adult Students Scholarship Selection Committee established by the Office of Adult Students and Evening Services for the OASES, Carol A. Douglas, and Osher Reentry Scholarships.

To apply for scholarships visit the University Scholarship Office website, NINER SCHOLARS (scholarships.uncc.edu). Enter your information into the NINER SCHOLARS scholarship portal.  Based on your information the portal will respond with scholarships you qualify for.  Complete the application and attach required documents.  The portal opens in October and deadlines vary. Awards are for the following academic year.
