Our Opportunities

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 based on your area 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. Some scholarships are awarded solely based on the General or Conditional Application. These awards list “No Action Needed” in the action column. You will automatically be considered for these awards as long as you’ve submitted the required General or Conditional Application and you meet the award requirements. Qualifying for any scholarship does not guarantee you will receive the scholarship.

Scholarship Application Dates
New scholarships are posted throughout the year and application deadlines vary. However, the majority of scholarship application dates are as follows:
Application Start Date: 9/6/2023
Application Deadline (currently enrolled students): 11/5/2023
Application Deadline (students admitted for Fall 2024): 3/15/2024

UWO Fox Cities and Fond du Lac Campus Students:
Many scholarships are available through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region for Fox Cities Campus students or the UWO Fond du Lac Foundation for Fond du Lac Campus students. You can search or filter by “Fox Cities Campus” or “Fond du Lac Campus” in Academic Works to find additional opportunities you may be eligible for.

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.

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