Thank you for your interest in School of Human Ecology (SoHE) Scholarships. The School of Human Ecology uses   'Scholarships@UW-Madison' in the Student Services Tab of the My UW-Madison portal to be considered for all scholarships.  These scholarships and awards are made available only to students majoring in programs in SoHE.

The SoHE Awards Committee will review applications, taking into consideration the academic achievement, qualifications, community involvement, leadership, career aspirations, and educational plans of each student.

The deadline to apply for 2018-19 SoHE Scholarships is Friday, December 8, 2017. Students will be notified of their scholarship award status by email in late March or early April 2017.

All eligible applicants must be currently admitted to and enrolled in one of the School of Human Ecology majors. Scholarship recipients must be registered as a full-time student (12+ credits) for the Fall 2018 semester to be eligible to receive the award. Scholarships are generally awarded electronically in one lump sum to students' accounts by the end of the third week of the fall semester. SoHE uses one application to award approximately 50 scholarships to our students each year. 

All scholarships awarded through the School of Human Ecology in recent years are listed below. Actual availability varies by year.

If you have any questions, please email scholarships@sohe.wisc.edu.

Application Information

The School of Human Ecology uses one application for all SoHE scholarships. Students are asked questions to help determine their eligibility for certain scholarships, and an awards committee makes determinations about scholarship allocation.
