Scholarships

Scholarships are monetary gifts from community, private, and campus sources and are usually based on academic merit or some other criteria. Some scholarships also require verification of financial need. Therefore, all scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Campus foundations, local businesses, and other sources provide scholarships for students at UW-Marinette. No repayment of scholarships is required.

Contact your high school counselor and/or the UW-Marinette Solution Center for scholarship information.
