Incoming Students


Your admissions application automatically allows you to be considered for many scholarships.

To be eligible for university scholarships, you must be admitted to Parkside by February 1. 

Including your intended major on your application is important for many scholarships.

If you are eligible for scholarships, you will receive an email with next steps to for consideration.

Out of State Students

Nonresident Scholarship Program  |  Students from states other than Wisconsin or Minnesota are charged the nonresident tuition rate. Each scholarship is prorated, based on the number of credits the student is enrolled in. Amounts listed represent full-time enrollment. These scholarships do not pertain to online courses or courses taken as consortium courses.

International Students

There are a limited number of renewable awards for full time, degree-seeking international students that cover a portion of the out-of-state tuition charge. Funding is limited, so we strongly recommend that international students apply early for admission.

Continuing Students


One UW-Parkside General Scholarship Application allows you to be considered for many scholarships.


Check RangerMail during the fall semester for an email containing a link to the scholarship application for the following academic year.

The application will already contain some information about you, so you’ll focus on answering additional questions and completing short essays. Submit!

If you have been awarded a scholarship, you will receive an email notifying you of the scholarship and award amount. Next steps will be provided.

The continuing student UW-Parkside Scholarship Application was closed on Friday, December 30 at 11:59 pm for the 2023-2024 academic year. Review Committees will begin the review in late January. Recipients will be notified during the Spring of 2023.

If you did not make the deadline, we encourage you to seek private scholarships from organizations outside UW-Parkside. Most private scholarship applications open after the holiday season and close in early spring. If you would like help identifying private scholarships best suited to you, please email
