Welcome to the UW Oshkosh Scholarship website! The scholarships listed below are offered through UW Oshkosh and the UW Oshkosh Foundation. Click “Show Filters” to display filter options such as college or major. Use the “Search” box to find scholarships by keyword or name. Click the scholarship name to learn more about the opportunity.

Sign in, complete your General Application. You may also be prompted to complete a Conditional Application which is required for some areas of study. Once you complete these applications, you will be recommended open scholarship opportunities that you may be qualified to apply for based on your student record. You may also be considered for some scholarships based on your Conditional Application, without further action needed on your part. Qualifying for any scholarship does not guarantee you will receive the scholarship.

Application Start Date: 9/7/2022
Application Deadline (currently enrolled students): 11/6/2022

UWO Fox Cities and Fond du Lac Campus Students:

Please note: The scholarship amount awarded may vary from the advertised amount. Payout of all awards is subject to availability of funds. Due to NCAA Div. III regulations, athletics cannot be considered in the awarding of scholarships. Commenting on athletic involvement on scholarship applications or references from coaches is prohibited.
