UWM Undergraduate International Student Incentive Program

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) has a incentive program for newly admitted international undergraduate students. Incentive award decisions will be based on academic merit and the diversity of the candidate (i.e. how the candidate contributes to the diversity of UWM).

The scholarship awards may be up to $5,000 per academic year ($2,500 per semester) and may be renewed each year (for a maximum of four years total).

Students are automatically reviewed on a rolling basis for a incentive at the time they are admitted and will be notified in their admission letter. Incentives will be awarded until all money is fully allocated. To ensure full consideration for an award for fall, students should be admitted by May 1st and for spring by October 1st. Note that only students admitted to a bachelor’s degree program at UWM will be considered for this scholarship.

We strongly encourage all admitted international students to also fill out the incentive application and apply for scholarships they believe they meet the eligibility requirements for. This can be done at uwm.academicworks.com using your new ePantherID
