General Overview

The Stout University Foundation sponsors scholarships for degree seeking undergraduate and graduate students through a highly competitive process. Foundation scholarships are financed by the contributions of alumni, friends, parents, faculty, campus organizations, other Stout staff, foundations and corporations. More than $650,000 is awarded annually for the benefit of UW-Stout students. There is always a need for more scholarships for UW-Stout students and permanent scholarship funds may be established in the Foundation through bequests or special gifts. All gifts to the Stout University Foundation are tax deductible. 

Many thanks to our scholarship application readers who work to evaluate over 1300 applications annually.

Criteria for Selection

No single factor will be responsible for an applicant receiving a scholarship. Factors which are considered include: academic performance, letter of recommendation, professional activities, extracurricular activities, community involvement, written statements and, in many cases, financial need. Please note: To be considered for Foundation scholarships that specify financial need as a requirement, you should complete a FAFSA application by February 15, 2018, or as close to that date as possible.

Note: Both full-time and part-time students may apply. However, awards for students who are part-time (less than 12 credits for undergraduates and 6 credits for graduate students) will be prorated.

The Scholarship Committee will review applications and make the selections in the spring. Winners of scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year will be notified by e-mail or mail by April 13th. Scholarship recipients are required to write a letter of appreciation to the scholarship donors and attend a formal award ceremony in September before payment is made for tuition.
