I am a sophomore; do I apply for scholarships that reference "sophomore" in the criteria?

You must apply for scholarships based on what your class level will be for the 2018-19 academic year.

Use the search tab to search for UWL Foundation scholarships. Use broad keywords such as theat (to search for theatre or theater scholarships), phy or exercise (to search for physical education, physical therapy or other ESS scholarships). Incoming freshmen or 1st year students should use the keyword (fresh) to search for all awards related to freshman or freshmen.

How do I upload a transcript?

Continuing students must upload a current UWL transcript. You can access an unofficial transcript via WINGS, My Academics, View my Unofficial Transcript, save to your computer and then upload to your scholarship application.

Incoming freshman must contact their guidance counselor for an unofficial transcript and upload with the application. Scan the transcript and save as a pdf and upload, or simply upload if you received the transcript via email. The scholarship system is not able to access the transcript submitted to the Admissions Office.
