Transfer Student Scholarship

The College of Engineering at UW-Madison values the outstanding contributions made by the transfer students who are joining our community from other colleges and universities. The Transfer Student Scholarship was established in 2017 to reward incoming transfer students for establishing an excellent academic foundation and distinguishing themselves as transfer student scholars. A few scholarships ($1000 each) are awarded on a competitive basis to support transfer students in their financial transition to UW-Madison based on academic merit, with priority to those with financial need. Students must confirm their enrollment in their MyUW Student Center in order to access the application. Scholarship offers will be made in late January, and funds will be applied to the first tuition bill. The Transfer Student Scholarship is not renewable. Scholarships for incoming and transfer students are limited to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
