Foundation and Trust Fund Scholarships

Who's Eligible

  • Freshmen applicants who have submitted a scholarship application essay, who have a GPA of 3.00 and have an ACT of at least 21 will be considered for a Foundation scholarship. In certain cases and for certain awards, a lower ACT and/or lower GPA may be considered depending on the scholarship application essay.
  • Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis among this group. Award recipients usually have a strong high school curriculum and present an ACT score and/or class rank that is above these minimums. 

Types of Foundation and Trust Fund Scholarships

Numerous awards are given to incoming freshmen students on the basis of academic merit, intended major, and other criteria. Some scholarships are renewable if the specified criteria continue to be met, but the majority are for one year. Students will have the opportunity to apply for additional scholarships each year as continuing students. Scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the many alumni and friends of UW-Superior. 

The application for admission to University of Wisconsin-Superior is also the application for Foundation scholarships for incoming freshmen, and students will be notified if they are awarded a scholarship. 
A list of current scholarships can be found on the UW - Superior Foundation page


Scholarship Application Process

You must submit a scholarship application essay to be considered for a Foundation scholarship. You must be admitted to UW-Superior prior to submitting your scholarship application essay. Our scholarship application essay opens on October 1 and our first round of scholarship deadline is December 1. All admitted students who have submitted a scholarship application essay prior to December 1 will be considered. Our second round scholarship deadline is February 1. This pool will consist of students who have been admitted after December 1, students who submitted their scholarship application essay after December 1, and students who didn’t receive a scholarship in the first round of scholarship awards. Scholarship recipients must generally enroll as full-time students (12 or more credits per semester), and will receive awards in two installments, each at the start of each semester.
