Sentry Insurance Student Leadership Scholarship

The Sentry Insurance Foundation established this scholarship to help and encourage individuals with proven leadership potential. The scholarship is awarded to incoming freshmen who are admitted to the Oshkosh campus. Applicant must demonstrate significant leadership experience and must plan to major in mathematics or computer science within the College of Letters & Science or in accounting, finance, or information systems within the College of Business. Applicant must rank in the top 10% of their high school class. If your high school doesn’t rank, you must have a minimum 3.75 cumulative GPA and have greater than a 26 ACT score or 1240 SAT score. Financial need, based on the FAFSA, is not required, but may be taken into consideration if necessary as a tiebreaker. Recipient must enroll full-time in order to receive the award payout. This scholarship is renewable for an additional three years provided the recipient maintains full-time enrollment, a minimum grade-point average of 3.3, continues to pursue a degree in one of the required areas of study at UW Oshkosh, and funding is available.
