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!
