New Freshmen Scholarships

Deadline to Apply: February 15

By submitting an application for either scholarship category, a student will be considered for a number of scholarships the University has to offer. The Scholarship Review Committee will begin awarding scholarships after the deadline of February 15 each year, and the process will continue throughout the summer until funds have been committed. Scholarship selection is competitive. Students selected for a University scholarship will be notified via postal mail starting in March.

New Freshmen are defined as either current high school seniors or students with no prior college credits, who have been admitted to and will enter UW-Green Bay as degree-seeking undergraduate students in the fall.

The Scholarship Review Committee will verify and update student information based on the data provided in a student's initial application for admission (e.g. cumulative high school gpa's, ACT scores, etc.). Weighted gpa's will be calculated based on a 4.0 scale. Students who do not meet the minimum qualifications necessary for consideration of either scholarship category will be notified.

Some University scholarships require students to complete a FAFSA application for consideration. Complete one after January 1st at
