UWSP Scholarships

Incoming Freshman and Transfer Scholarships 
The awarding of scholarships is a separate process than applying for financial aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Incoming freshman scholarships awarded through the Admissions Office are based on merit, not financial need. However, we strongly encourage you to complete the FAFSA so that you can be considered for all types of financial aid for which you are eligible (loans, grants, and/or work study). You may apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov and be sure to list UWSP as a recipient of your information. Our school code is 003924.
  • Automatic scholarships are awarded to both freshmen and transfers who meet certain academic criteria. A list of Pointer Payback Scholarships is available here.

  • There are additional scholarships that require an application. Priority scholarship consideration will be given to students who have submitted their application for admission and scholarship application to UW-Stevens Point by December 15.

  • Fall 2017 UW-Stevens Point scholarship application available here soon! 

Incoming Freshman, Transfer, and Continuing Student Scholarships 
Some academic departments also have scholarship money available, both for new students and continuing students in their second, third and fourth years of college. 
  • Students are encouraged to contact the department of their intended major to explore these additional scholarship possibilities.  

  • A full scholarship listing is available here.
