Our Opportunities

Welcome! Below, you will find a listing of scholarship opportunities available to students with information about the applications, deadlines, eligibility criteria, award amounts, donors, and more. Additional scholarship information may be found at scholarships.uwm.edu, including our frequently asked questions.

How to Apply for Scholarships

To apply for scholarships, you must be admitted to UWM. Admitted and current students have a Panther Scholarship Portal profile created for them based on their UWM student record. Sign in using your ePantherID and complete the General Application to enhance your profile and make you eligible for even more scholarships. Based on your answers in the General Application and your student record, you will be matched with scholarship opportunities as follows:

  • You may be automatically matched with scholarships for which you meet the criteria, and your profile will be available to the awarding department for consideration. When you’re signed in, these auto-match scholarships will be listed as “None” under the Actions column, meaning no further action is required on your part. Qualifying does not guarantee that you will be offered a scholarship.
  • You may be a good candidate for a scholarship, and more information is required from you to be considered. When you’re signed in, "Apply” will appear under the Actions column, and you must complete a scholarship-specific application. Read each scholarship’s description to determine if you would be a good candidate. Qualifying and applying do not guarantee that you will be offered a scholarship.

New applications become available throughout the year, so check the Panther Scholarship Portal regularly for new opportunities.
