Native American Scholarship Fund

The Native American Scholarship fund will provide a $1000 scholarship that will go toward assisting an Native American UW-Superior student to complete their education.

Nationally, of the Native students that do go to college, only 3% graduate, with finances one of the biggest reasons for dropping out. UW-Superior maintains the highest percentage and highest retention rate of Native American students of any UW System school. This year we graduated 18 Native students! These types of programs indicate our effectiveness in recruiting and retaining Native American students.
