Scholarship Information for Faculty and Staff

The scholarship award process:

  1. Scholarship and Dept. Fund Report: Each spring, University Advancement will send each department chair a report which lists the available amounts and criteria for their department's scholarships and other funds for the following academic year. And once the spring semester begins, the online application process is opened to current students with a deadline in early March.  
  2. Reviewing Applications: The Foundation will notify the department chairs when reviewing can begin, and department scholarship committees will review the applications online. Once each committee has discussed the applicants and made their choices, the department scholarship chairs will submit the recommendations to the Foundation office. Each department has a unique system of reviewing - please contact your department's scholarship chair with any department-specific review questions. Faculty and staff members who are associated with athletics in any way are not permitted to serve on scholarship committees.

    The University of Wisconsin-Superior is an NCAA Division III member institution and is therefore prohibited from considering athletic leadership, ability, participation, or performance in making scholarship or financial aid award decisions regarding any student. Award decisions will be based solely on non-athletic related qualifications. NCAA Regulation 15.01.3 Institutional Financial Aid: A member institution shall not award financial aid to any student on the basis of athletic leadership, ability, participation or performance.  
  3. Awarding Scholarships: Once the recommendations are received and verified in the system, the Foundation will notify the students who have been awarded scholarships via email. The goal is to have all award emails sent by the end of April.
