Meadows Scholarship

The Meadows Scholarship supports a full-time bachelor’s degree student currently enrolled in classes at UWM who was previously in foster care, with a preference for someone who aged out of foster care. Academic merit will be considered and qualified applicants will have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA. Flex degree students are not eligible.

Applications are typically accepted in spring semester. Applicants will be required to provide information about their family background as it relates to foster care. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2024 are for Fall 2024; students graduating in May or August 2024 are not eligible.
