The generosity of alumni and friends has enabled the School of Education to distribute approximately $300,000 in scholarships and awards to deserving undergraduate students. Half of these scholarships are awarded through a school-wide competitive process; the other half are awarded by individual departments and programs.

The selection criteria for specific undergraduate scholarships and awards vary and may include academic performance, excellence in a specific field or area, potential as a professional, leadership ability, personal attributes (such as returning adult status or home county), and financial need. All scholarship and award recipients must be in good academic standing in the School of Education.

School-wide scholarships for undergraduates are designated for any major in the School of Education; however, most go to students already admitted to their major or program. Finalists are selected from among all applicants by the All School Scholarship Committee. While many are awarded, the number of scholarships is substantially smaller than the number of eligible students.

Many departmental scholarships and awards are available for students in School of Education majors unrelated to teaching. The recipients of these scholarships are selected by the individual departmental scholarship committees.

If you have any questions, please contact soe-scholarships@education.wisc.edu.
