Our Opportunities

Welcome to UWM’s Panther Scholarship Portal!

These scholarships are made possible by generous gifts from donors, friends, and alumni of UW-Milwaukee who are committed to the education of UWM students.

To access the Portal, you must be admitted to either the Milwaukee or Waukesha campus. Log in using your PAWS credentials, and then begin with the General Application. Complete as much as possible, as this will be the primary source of information used to select recipients. In addition, you may be asked to complete a secondary School/College/Department Application. After completing the application(s), a list of available scholarship opportunities that you potentially match with will be provided for you to apply to.

Need help logging in? Please contact the UWM Help Desk by calling (414) 229-4040 or visiting their request support page.

UWM at Washington County students may find scholarship opportunities by visiting the Washington County Campus Foundation.
