Scholarships are monetary gifts from community, private, and campus sources and are usually based on academic merit or some other criteria. Some scholarships also require verification of financial need. Therefore, all scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Scholarships for students at the University are supported by private donors, local businesses, and the annual fundraising event, Corks & Forks. No repayment of scholarships is required. 

Scholarships may be awarded to: 

  • New incoming freshmen
  • New incoming transfer students
  • Returning adult students, age 22 or older
  • Continuing students

    Departing students should review and participate in the scholarship application process with their transfer school. Departing students can also search local community foundations for transfer scholarship opportunities.

    The Berger Book Bag Fund provides financial assistance to UWO–Fond du Lac students who might otherwise have difficulty purchasing needed books and academic supplies.

Berger, Sr., who together were instrumental in the establishment of the Fond du Lac campus in 1963.
