Schwertfeger Student Award
Fred and Ruth Schwertfeger support a variety of scholarships and awards for German students at UWM. Eligible students will have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA and preference will be given to declared German majors, minors, or Business German minors.
Students who have an up-to-date Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application will be considered, typically in spring each year between February and April. No additional or separate application is required; students should thoroughly fill out the Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application. 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 2023 are for Fall 2023; students graduating in May or August 2023 are not eligible.
