Transferring Student Scholarships

Eligibility

To determine which scholarships you are eligible for, complete the online questionnaire. (The information from the questionnaire will be saved and can be used for your scholarship online application.)

To receive a UW-WC scholarship, you must attend the UW-Washington County campus.  For each scholarship, half of the amount is awarded in fall and the remaining half is awarded in the spring. Eligibility requirements and application guidelines must be met each semester of the award. 

Scholarship Application

Scholarship applications for transferring UW-WC students for the 2013/14 academic are now available online. Only one application is needed and you will be considered for all scholarships for which you are eligible. The deadline for scholarship applications is Friday, February 15, 2013.
