Our Opportunities

Welcome to UWM’s Panther Scholarship Portal!

These scholarships are made possible by the generous gifts made by donors, friends, and alumni of UW-Milwaukee who are committed to the education of UWM students. To begin, you must be admitted to either the Milwaukee or Waukesha campus locations. Please sign in using your PAWS ePantherID and password. Once logged in, you will start with the General Application, please complete as much as possible as this will be the main source used to select recipients. In addition, you may be asked to complete a school/college/dept application. After completing these applications, a list of open opportunities that you potentially match to will be provided for you to apply to. If you need help logging in, please contact the UWM Help Desk by calling (414) 229-4040 or visit UWM HELP DESK. UWM-Washington students may find scholarship opportunities by visiting Washington Campus Foundation
