Notes for Applicants
Scholarships are awarded to recognize the outstanding academic work of current and future UW-Madison students. Eligibility criteria will vary, even within individual schools and colleges. While not the only factor, financial need is often considered in the selection process.
Pay particular attention to submission deadlines, as they vary by school and college. There is no single date when all scholarships are awarded. Recipients will be notified when final decisions have been made.
