New Freshmen Scholarships

Priority application date: February 15

By submitting an application a student will be considered for a number of named scholarships the University has to offer. The Scholarship Review Committee will begin awarding after the priority application date 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.

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 summer or fall.

The Scholarship Review Committee will verify and update student information based on the data provided in a student's initial application for admission to UW-Green Bay (e.g. cumulative high school gpa's, ACT scores, etc.). Weighted gpa's will be calculated based on a 4.0 scale.

Some University Scholarships require students to complete a FAFSA application for consideration. We encourage all students to complete one after October 1st of the year before they will start attending UW-Green Bay at
