Generally, UW-Parkside awards scholarships for academic achievement and/or talent to undergraduate students. While some scholarships may require a specific major, service or leadership, financial need, or an audition (such as in the fine arts), all of them also require demonstration of a higher level of academic achievement or artistic performance or promise.
The scholarship application requires that you write a personal statement. It is critical that you communicate the full range of your experience, achievement, commitment and personality in a very brief format. Selection committees are looking for a clear picture of who you are, and where you are headed. The Scholarship Office can assist you with your personal statement.
