Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub (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. UW-Madison scholarships consider students for awards using a holistic framework that may include, but is not limited to, academic achievement, past and potential contributions, service and leadership, and financial need. To begin applying to scholarships, please sign in with your NetID and complete the brief General Application. Based on your answers in the General Application, you will be directed to fill out more specific scholarship applications for which you are eligible.

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

Incoming Undergraduate Students


As an incoming student, it is important to activate your UW-Madison NetID and password as soon as you apply to the University. Most scholarships for incoming students are automatically offered by your School/College based on your application for admission to UW-Madison. However, there are also some program-specific scholarship applications that you may complete if you are eligible and interested. Those applications typically open in October-November and have deadlines in early February, so don’t wait until you know your admission status to apply and be sure to log in to WiSH regularly!
