It's Scholarship Time!

Resources, tips and tricks for your student's scholarship search
December 10, 2020

We know paying for college can be stressful. But helping our Blue Devils reach their goal of graduation is a top priority.

So, to make college more affordable for students and families, UW-Stout offers hundreds of scholarships.

Here are a few resources for you and your student to consider as application deadlines approach.

Foundation Scholarships

The Stout University Foundation offers scholarship opportunities for full- or part-time undergraduate and graduate students. This fall, the Foundation awarded more than $864,000 in scholarships to approximately 400 students.

Applying is easy. Students complete the foundation scholarship application and submit a letter of recommendation. One application and letter qualify your student for any foundation scholarship they meet the criteria for. Look through our entire Foundation scholarships database to see which ones might be a great fit for your student.

Stout University Foundation is in the Louis Smith Tainter House.

Grants and Scholarships for Underrepresented Students
