Foundation and Trust Fund Scholarships

Who's Eligible

  • Freshmen applicants who have been admitted to UW-Superior and who have a high school GPA of 2.75 or higher may be considered for a Foundation Scholarship. In certain cases and for certain awards, a lower GPA may be considered depending on the scholarship application essay. Students must submit a scholarship application essay to be considered for a Foundation Scholarship, Swenson Scholarship (full-tuition) or Mathis Scholarship. Application process details may be found below.
  • Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis among this group. Award recipients usually have high academic merit and will have submitted an exceptional essay.

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 the first 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.
