Scholarship Application Dates
Below are the general scholarship application dates for current and incoming UWO students. Some scholarship application deadlines may fall outside of these dates. Please refer to the scholarship listing for deadlines of open scholarships.

Current UWO Students:
Application Start Date: 11/08/2017
Application End Date: 12/10/2017

Incoming UWO Students (Enrolling Fall 2018):
Application Start Date: 11/08/2017
Application End Date: 02/02/2018

Sign in, complete your General Application. Depending on your major you may be prompted to complete a Conditional Application which is required for scholarships in your major or area of study. Once you complete the General Application (and Conditional Application, if applicable), scholarships that are currently “open” will be recommended to you if you meet the basic criteria. Please keep in mind, that recommended does not constitute qualified.

Scholarships with the word “apply” in the Action column (after you sign in) require further action on your part in order to be considered. Click “apply” to complete the application process.

Please read the scholarship eligibility requirements carefully to make sure you meet ALL eligibility requirements (e.g. major, GPA, enrollment requirement to receive the scholarship, other requirements as stated) before applying.

There are some scholarship opportunities you do not have to apply to, but will be automatically matched to after you complete your Conditional Application. Qualifying for any scholarship does not guarantee you will receive the scholarship.

Due to NCAA Div. III regulations, athletic leadership, ability, participation or performance shall not be considered in the awarding of scholarships. Commenting on athletic involvement in scholarship applications and requesting letters of recommendation from coaches are prohibited.

The scholarship amount awarded may vary from the advertised amount. Payout of all awards is subject to availability of funds.

The General Application you completed will be kept until July/August of each year. You must complete a new General Application at the beginning of every Fall semester.

If you have any questions related to the scholarship process, please email scholarships@uwosh.edu.
