How and where a student applies for a scholarship varies according to their status and department. Please read the information below to learn how you can apply for scholarships.

How to apply for Foundation Scholarships
1. Complete the scholarship application: Complete parts A, B and C on the Foundation Scholarship Application and print or save. Then submit the application to your department chair or your advisor. (If you have a major in more than one department, you must provide a copy of the application to the chair of each department or your advisor in each department.) Department chairs and advisors will collect the applications, complete part D, and evaluate each application to determine which students shall be awarded Foundation Scholarships based on the donor-specified criteria for each scholarship.
2. Check with your academic department: Contact the department in which you are applying for the scholarship(s) to determine whether it requires more information than is asked for on the application and for the application deadline. Submit your application to the department(s) in which you are applying.
3. Watch your email for your Foundation Scholarship Award Letter: The University Advancement Office will email award letters to students who were recommended for scholarships by mid May. If you are concerned about whether you were awarded a Foundation Scholarship, contact your department chair or advisor before contacting the University Advancement Office.
4. Submit your Acceptance Thank You Letter: After you have received your scholarship award letter email, you have 30 days from the date on the letter to submit your Thank You Letter(s) to the University Advancement Office in Old Main, room 237. Only after the University Advancement Office has received your thank you can a scholarship be applied to your account. Failure to submit the Thank You Letter within the 30-day period could result in the scholarship being re-awarded to another student.
FAFSA will be used to determine whether or not a student has financial need. FAFSA paperwork must be submitted each year to the Financial Aid office in order to be considered for scholarships which include financial need as part of the criteria.
Students who receive a full tuition Foundation scholarship are generally not eligible for additional Foundation scholarships.
You can get a Foundation Scholarship Application on this website, from your department chair or advisor, or pick up an application at the University Advancement Office in Old Main, room 237.
Submit one scholarship application to each department in which you have a major. Each department has a different deadline and process, so be sure to watch for communications from each and to ask if other information is required.
Submit a separate application when applying for scholarships listed under the Financial Need, Academic Merit, etc. links above. Each of those departments will also communicate with students when it is time to apply.
If you are awarded a Foundation scholarship, you will receive an award letter in your UW-Superior email account. Emails are typically sent out before the end of spring semester, but some may be awarded during the summer.
Unfortunately, not all applicants will receive scholarship awards. If you have questions about whether or not you were awarded a Foundation scholarship, please contact the department in which you applied. Additional scholarship questions can be directed to the Advancement Office at 715-394-8452 or email@example.com.
Only after the University Advancement Office receives your acceptance thank you letter(s) for your scholarship award.
