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.
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.
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.
