EQI First Nation Scholarship

The UWM campus is home to the highest number of Indigenous American students within the UW System. The financial needs of our students are varied and often pose barriers to continuation and completion of higher education. With gratitude to the generosity of Bader Philanthropies the Electa Quinney Institute is able to provide multiple of various amounts each semester, starting in Spring 2020.

This scholarship is open to First Nation (American Indian, Alaska Native, or Native Hawaiian) identified students currently enrolled at UW-Milwaukee at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to being First Nation identified there are other requirements to be eligible for this scholarship.

To Apply: Go to the UWM Scholarship One Stop portal and ensure that your application is submitted.
