It’s that time of the year to search and apply for scholarships. About 400 scholarships totaling about $450,000 are available through the UW-La Crosse Foundation on the scholarship website. Apply online as soon as possible. The deadline for scholarship applications is midnight Friday, Feb. 15.
UW-L went paperless with its application process in January 2011. Students can now search for scholarships by keyword and apply for multiple scholarships without having to re-enter general application information. This year, the site also provides links to about 500 external scholarships.
Scholarships through the Foundation range from $200 to $8,000; however, the majority are awards of about $1,000.
Scholarships are geared toward students within a variety of academic majors and colleges. For instance, scholarships are available specifically for students with majors in chemistry, physical therapy, education, business or a concentration in aquatic sciences. Another scholarship is for someone who is student teaching in the 2013-14 school year, or a student whose parent or grandparent is a UW-L alum.
Scholarship recipients will be notified via email in late March. A scholarship reception is at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 29, 2013, in Valhalla, Cartwright Center-Gunning Addition.
