Scholarship Application


The application for 2015-2016 will be available in October 2014.

 

The Stout University Foundation sponsors scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students through a highly competitive process. Foundation scholarships are financed by the contributions of alumni, friends, parents, faculty, campus organizations, other Stout staff, foundations and corporations. More than $650,000 is awarded annually for the benefit of UW-Stout students. Permanent scholarship funds may be established in the Foundation through bequests or special gifts. All gifts to the Stout University Foundation are tax deductible.

Criteria for Selection

No single factor will be responsible for an applicant receiving a scholarship. Factors which are considered include: academic performance, letter of recommendation, professional activities, extracurricular activities, community involvement, written statements and, in many cases, financial need. Please note: To be considered for Foundation scholarships that specify financial need as a requirement, you should complete a FAFSA application by February 15, 2015, or as close to that date as possible.

Note: Both full-time and part-time students may apply. However, awards for students who are part-time (less than 12 credits for undergraduates and 6 credits for graduate students) will be prorated.

The Scholarship Committee will review applications and make the selections in the spring. Winners of scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year will be notified by mail by April 1st. Scholarship recipients are required to write a letter of appreciation to the scholarship donors and attend a formal award ceremony in September before payment is made for tuition.


Submit application online by February 2, 2015.
