Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub (WiSH)!

Looking for your old dashboard? If so, log in to Scholarships@UW-Madison. Please note that students will be unable to match to new scholarships, complete applications, or accept awards on your old dashboard – moving forward, all actions will take place in the new system, WiSH.

Below, you will find a listing of scholarship opportunities available to students with information about the applications, deadlines, eligibility criteria, award amounts, donors, and more. To apply for opportunities which require an application, you must first sign in with your NetID and password. You will then be able to complete a general application and, if applicable, apply for specific scholarships.

For scholarship FAQs, program and contact information for your School/College, and information on external scholarships, visit our Scholarships Page.
