Robert Trotalli Scholarship


The UWM Foundation is pleased to encourage students in their academic endeavors through the Robert J. Trotalli Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is made possible through the generosity of Robert J. Trotalli, a UWM administrator for more than 30 years, including a position as director of the office now known as the Accessibility Resource Center (ARC).

This scholarship will be awarded to one or more ARC students and may be used for tuition or other educational expenses. Scholarship funds may be renewable to recipients in good academic standing who continue to be enrolled at UWM in subsequent academic years. The amount of the award varies, with a minimum award of $500. The recipient will be strongly encouraged to attend a reception honoring scholarship donors and recipients to be held on campus during the fall semester.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Undergraduate in any degree program.
  • Student with a disability, defined here as a physical, learning, psychological or sensory disability that substantially limits a major life function as determined by the UWM.
  • Student is registered with ARC.
  • Good academic standing.

To apply, you must access the UWM Panther Scholarship Portal  and complete the 2021-2022 General Scholarship Application (available starting October 1, 2020) to be matched with this opportunity.  The Panther Scholarship Portal contains most scholarship opportunities on campus so an applicant will be matched with any OPEN opportunities they may qualify for at that time. If a potential matched opportunity opens after they’ve submitted their General Application, they should receive a notification directly from the scholarship portal however we also suggest that student access the portal consistently throughout the scholarship season for 2021-2022 to review opportunities.

Submitting the General Application sooner than later is advised. The 2021-2022 Robert J. Trotalli Application will close March 1, 2021. Please email any questions to schlrshp@uwm.edu.
