How do I apply?
Sign in by clicking the orange button at the top right, to complete your application. By filling out the one application you will automatch to all of the scholarships you are meeting the criteria. You will then see a list of recommended opportunities. The recommended opportunities are scholarships that you meet the base line criteria, but require something additional to fully apply like a letter of recommendation or an additional essay. Qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee you will receive the scholarship.
Note: It is recommended for you to save/update your application after entering each essay question to prevent the system from timing out and your information being lost.

Important notes:

  • The scholarship amount awarded may vary from the advertised amount. Payout of all awards is subject to availability of funds.
  • Due to NCAA Div. III regulations, athletic leadership, ability, participation, or performance at the college level cannot be considered in the awarding of scholarships.
  • Active Duty Service Members: You must submit your orders to the Robert and James Wright Center for Non-Traditional and Veteran Students to be considered a veteran within your scholarship application.

If you have any questions related to the scholarship process, please email finaid@uwplatt.edu.
