UW-Green Bay awards both needs- and merit-based scholarships. Funding is made possible by the fundraising efforts of the UW-Green Bay Foundation and the generosity of private donors who believe in the value of a UW-Green Bay education. To be considered for any of these UW-Green Bay scholarships, all admitted and current degree-seeking students should log in with their UW-Green Bay username and password and complete the General Application.
