Scholarsips & Coffee

As many of you know, the UWL Scholarship Resource Center (SRC) has been working hard at updating their new external scholarship database. The external database allows students to customize their search for scholarships according to their grade level, college of study and major. In addition, they help you filter based on other characteristics as well (gender, studying abroad, military related). So far, they have done a pretty good job at finding and adding as many scholarships to the database for UWL students as possible (They already have 638 scholarships!!). Beyond just creating easier access to these scholarships for students, the SRC has also been working hard at coming up with events and other opportunities to encourage students to reach out and ask for help with their applications.

  • Scholarsips & Coffee!
    • This might be my favorite SRC event that they have. Every Monday morning, from 9:00-11:30 am come to Murphy Library, room 150. Walk-ins are welcome at any time throughout the morning for students to come in and get help on their essays and any other scholarship questions they may have. And there is FREE coffee! If you ask me, there is nothing better than the combination of free coffee and the possibility of winning free money.
  • Welcoming walk-ins
    • The Scholarship Resource Center is located in the Financial Aid Office (215 Graff Main Hall), and always welcomes walk-ins! If you are unable to make it on Monday mornings to Scholarships & Coffee, feel free to stop by the office or call and set up an appointment with any questions or help that you would like!
    • Like I said, the SRC does an awesome job at finding TONS of scholarship opportunities for students that get put on the database. However, we want you to know that we are here for YOU. So, if you are having trouble finding a scholarship that fits your characteristics, take our Get Scholarcific survey! It’s pretty simple. Just complete the questionnaire, we’ll get your results, and email you about scholarships that we have looked up personally for you.
