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. These scholarships are for study abroad to Germany (or a German-speaking country) in UWinteriM 2023 or Spring 2023; students graduating in December 2022 are not eligible. Students planning to study abroad must also complete the study abroad application and approval process through the UWM Center for International Studies and meet all of their deadlines. The deadline to apply for approval for winter and spring abroad is October 1 and the deadline to apply for approval for summer and fall abroad is March 1.
Scholarship applications are typically accepted in October/November for winter and spring study abroad and in February/March for summer and fall study abroad. The study abroad must occur prior to a student’s graduation date.
