Support Students through Scholarships

Scholarships Help Students Dream Big at UW-Green Bay: Scholarships support UW-Green Bay’s mission of providing access to education for all who want it. Thank you to all who have made it possible to continue a great tradition of excellence in education at UW-Green Bay. We Are Stronger, with generous supporters and proud alumni supporting UW-Green

Scholarships make higher education accessible.

Private funding from community members, businesses, retirees, and alumni is essential to help UW-Green Bay students achieve their dreams.  

For many talented and gifted people wishing to pursue higher education, the financial resources may not be available to help them make these dreams a reality.

Hundreds of UW-Green Bay students benefit from donor funded scholarship support annually. With 84% of our first-year students receiving financial aid, your help in establishing need-based or merit-based scholarship funds will make an enduring impact.
 
Types of Scholarships
Set up a scholarship fund with your gift now or in the future through your estate planning. Scholarship funds can reflect your name, names of cherished loved ones, or a specific purpose. Contributions at any level are encourage to the UW-Green Bay Scholarship Fund or an existing named scholarship fund.
