ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – The University of Central Florida says it will offer an additional $40 million in scholarships and financial aid to students.

The Orlando-based school announced this week that the new scholarships and other institutional aid will help ensure that no student has to give up pursuing a degree because of money.

The school says nearly half of UCF students work more than 20 hours a week and that can often delay their earning degrees in four years.
