Scholarship and Award Application Information


To be considered for a 2016-2017 Scholarship you must submit the completed application by Midnight on November 7, 2016.

This application will take approximately 30 mins to complete, so plan accordingly.

General Information

Each year the CNR distributes more than $200,000 in scholarships.  Various criteria are considered for each scholarship; GPA, extra-curricular activities, experience, major, etc.  Recipients are selected from the applications submitted to the CNR; therefore upon completion of this application form, you will be eligible for 200+ scholarships offered in the College.

Some of the information may be considered personal or confidential.  You may refuse to provide such information, but if you do, you may remove yourself from consideration for specific awards (but only those awards) which require that information.  For example, the primary criteria for many scholarships are major, county of residence or financial need, etc.

Please fill out the application in a professional manner.  The reports generated from this application are the only representation of you that the selection committee and scholarship donors have a chance to see.  Be very thorough and accurate when completing this information form.  Be certain to check grammar and spelling in the narrative, as this is what most reviewers use in forming an impression of you.  Typographical or grammatical errors and sloppy workmanship will prevent your receiving favorable consideration from some awarding agencies.

Students will be notified via their UWSP email account if they are chosen to receive a scholarship by February 27, 2017, after the donors have reviewed and verified the recommendation of the CNR Scholarship Committee.  The CNR Celebration Evening to be held on April 7, 2017.

Note to December 2016 Graduates - this application is designed for students who will be attending school in the Spring 2017 semester and beyond. It is not intended for December 2016 graduates.

Note to Graduate Students - this scholarship application is for undergraduate students only. Any CNR scholarships intended for graduate students will be chosen by the discipline in which the scholarship is housed.
