The Panther Scholarship Portal is your hub for scholarship applications.

NEW $4,000 Engineering Excellence Scholarship for Incoming Freshmen for Fall 2024:

All domestic new freshmen pursuing a bachelor’s degree full-time are eligible based on high school GPA of 3.75+. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years ($1,000/year) if students continue full-time enrollment. Qualified freshmen receive their scholarship automatically upon full-time enrollment and are notified of the award shortly after admittance. No scholarship application is required.

This award may be combined with other scholarships and grants offered by UWM, including the Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship and Black & Gold Scholarship.

Other Scholarship Opportunities:

No more time spent filling out multiple applications that ask the same questions. Now you can fill out one general application and the Panther Scholarship Portal will do the rest, assuring that your application is reviewed for all scholarships and you will be contacted for those of which you are eligible.

You’ll also find an external link to even more scholarships available outside of UWM.
