Through the generosity of alumni, faculty, and friends, over $1,000,000 in merit and need-based scholarship support has been awarded to Lubar College of Business students in 2022-23.

You must be admitted to UW-Milwaukee with an intended undergraduate major in Business or be admitted to a Lubar graduate program in order to apply for these scholarships.

New Freshmen: Incoming admitted first-year undergraduate students may be eligible for generous merit- or merit + need-based scholarships offered by the Lubar College of Business. Students admitted to UWM by December 1, 2022 with an intended major in business will be considered for these opportunities based on their admission data. To be considered, admitted first-year students must complete and submit a General Application on the Panther Scholarship Portal by December 1, 2022. Initial offers will be sent to eligible students from mid-December through late-January. Additional offers may be made should funding be available.

New Graduate Students: Incoming admitted graduate students are eligible to apply for scholarships offered through the Lubar College of Business prior to their first semester. Students admitted to a Lubar College graduate degree program (excluding EMBA and PhD) are invited to apply for scholarships via the Panther Scholarship Portal. Based on your answers in the General Application and your student record, you will be invited to apply for opportunities for which you may be a good candidate but additional information is required from you to be considered. “Apply” will appear under the Actions column in the portal and you must complete a scholarship-specific application. Lubar Graduate Scholarships are currently open for application and have a deadline of June 15, 2023.

Continuing & Transfer Students: 

Continuing and transfer students will receive an email to their UWM email account that announces the online application process for awards for the following academic year. The annual deadline for the Lubar Continuing Student Scholarship Application is February 1.

A full list of available scholarships available to business students through the Lubar College of Business can be found HERE! Individual scholarships are awarded based on the specific eligibility criteria set in place by our generous donors. 

All students are encouraged to submit a General Application on the Panther Scholarship Portal to be considered for other campus-wide scholarship opportunities. Please visit for information on how to apply and search for scholarships on the Portal.

Without the scholarship… I would have never known what it was like to be a UWM Panther. Proud of my university and in love with the city of Milwaukee. I would have never had the chance to find a marketing internship, and be on the road to accomplishing my goals.
