The UWL Scholarship Resource Center (SRC) has been hard at work updating their new external scholarship database. This database was developed to give students even more access to outside scholarships. By using this database, students are able to customize their search for scholarships according to their own grade level, college of study and major. I don’t know about you but I have limited time to scour the internet for scholarships so this database is a great resource for all students here at UWL and perspective students as well! We all know the scholarship search can be time consuming and then, just when you think you found one, it has a requirement that you just don’t quite meet. Worse yet is applying for a scholarship only to realize after the work is done that you are only a sophomore and you have to be a junior to apply. It can be a headache and I completely understand why some students feel so frustrated!
So what do you do if you want more scholarship options even after using our new database? Well, GET SCHOLARCIFIC! In addition to taking the legwork out of the scholarship search by building an external database, the SRC has designed a short survey to help find you scholarships that are even more specific to your unique academic achievements, extracurricular activities, hobbies, community involvement and more! Simply fill out the short survey and SRC will send you a list of external and UWL Foundation scholarship that you may qualify for. Give it a shot now!
The SRC is located in the Financial Aid Office and walk-ins are welcome! You can also drop off your applications if you would like someone to edit them!
