General Information Regarding the WAA: Milwaukee Chapter Scholarships

The WAA: Milwaukee Chapter awards tuition scholarships each year to seniors graduating from Milwaukee County and Ozaukee County High Schools who will attend the University of Wisconsin – Madison. These scholarships are made on the basis of financial need, high school grades, extracurricular activities, and general social adjustment. The scholarship is for freshman year only.

How to Apply

All chapter scholarship applications are available directly through the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub (WiSH). Students who have applied to UW–Madison and have activated their Net ID can apply from November 1–February 1 for the following academic year. Students can and should apply before they are admitted to the UW.
