New Friends of Water Scholarship gives undergrads big boost

We are pleased to introduce the Friends of Water Scholarship for new freshmen and transfer students majoring in Freshwater Sciences. These $500 awards are for full-time undergraduate students starting in Fall 2021. In addition, if you are a first-generation student, hold military or veteran status, or are a member of a racial or ethnic minority group underrepresented in higher education in UW System, you are eligible to receive an additional $500.

Awards are disbursed over two terms in the academic year, fall 2021 and spring 2022, as long as students remain in good academic standing at UWM. Students who qualify for a Friends of Water Scholarship will receive their scholarships automatically upon enrollment at UWM. They will be notified of the award after they are admitted. No scholarship application is required.
