University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee

Scholarships and Fellowships

Scholarships and fellowships are critical to ensuring that UWM remain a campus of opportunity and access. A campus of opportunity allows students to stretch their minds, hone their skills, and prepare for successful careers and lives; it also gives Milwaukee a highly educated workforce that is a powerful tool for revitalizing its economy. A campus of access makes higher education an option for all qualified and ambitious students, regardless of their financial circumstances. A gift supporting a scholarship or fellowship is a gift that will directly support a student at UWM.

Scholarships do more than pay the way. They also empower students to do their best. “I’ve written to my scholarship donors and they’ve written back,” says one scholarship recipient. “Beyond the financial help, the scholarship really motivates and encourages me. It tells me that there are a lot of people who support me and are counting on me.”

Gifts of all sizes to the University's general scholarship fund are important and appreciated.
