Program Information

Expand organization information Collapse organization information
The UW-Madison Undergraduate Scholarship for Summer Study is managed by the office of Summer Term. We are fortunate to be able to award scholarships to high achieving undergraduate students seeking financial support to take courses in the summer session at UW-Madison.

Summer Term
During the summer term, students may earn up to twelve credits, enabling them to graduate on schedule or, in some cases, graduate early. Each summer, more than 13,000 students enroll in summer courses offered on campus or online.

UW-Madison undergraduates enroll for summer courses the same way they would for fall and spring courses. For more information on course offerings, sessions, and this scholarship, please visit summer.wisc.edu or email summer@dcs.wisc.edu.
