Please review the application information below.

Application Guidelines:

Students who wish to be considered must have a completed profile on file in the UWM Scholarship Portal. Your profile is a one-time set up that will match you with all available scholarships and awards. So it is important that you complete the profile both to be considered for this opportunity, as well as future scholarships across the entire campus. Access the portal at Academic Works (https://uwm.academicworks.com). If you previously set up your profile, you may go in and edit or add any new information.

In addition to the general profile, students must complete the College of Letters & Science profile. This profile consists of just one item – upload a copy of your most recent UWM transcript. If you previously uploaded a transcript, you must upload a new one that shows your Fall 2019 grades.

The application deadline is May 26, 2020. Technical problems with the portal should be directed to let-sci@uwm.edu.
