Students can apply without their institutions being a current UNLP-approved organization. However, institutions with students receiving awards will need to be UNLP-approved by NE prior to the transfer of award funds. This is completed by the university/college through a separate Funding Opportunity Announcement (DE-FOA-0002265) found at www.grants.gov. For more information on how to become a UNLP-approved institution, please visit the Scholarship and Fellowship Resources page at neup.gov.
