University of Wisconsin Oshkosh officials are happy to announce a sizable gift designated for student scholarships.

The University will award 35 Titans First Generation Scholarships of $1,000 each for students who are first generation―the first in their family to attend college. Additionally, a total of 45 $1,000 awards (non-first generation) will be made through Titans Promise Incoming Freshman Scholarships.

A generous donor is providing $50,000 for 25 of the first generation scholarships and 25 of the incoming freshman scholarships. The additional $30,000 for the scholarships is being provided by the UW Oshkosh Foundation.

“We are excited to promote this big increase to our existing scholarship opportunities and we are so grateful for the donor and UW Oshkosh Foundation supporting the needs of our students,” said Aggie Hanni, UWO assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management. “We actively examine financial barriers and explore meaningful ways to make UW Oshkosh more affordable and accessible.”

The scholarships found on UWO Academic Works will be dispersed in the fall semester for students studying at the Oshkosh campus. Many scholarships have an upcoming Feb. 5 deadline, but some will continue to be available beyond that date.

Students must have a 2.8 high school grade point average on a 4.0 scale and essays are required. Students applying for the first generation scholarships must self-report on the application.

“Nearly half of our students are one of the first members of their family to attend college,” Hanni said. “We offer special events and advising sessions for all incoming students including those for first-generation students and their families. The additional scholarship funds are a tangible extension of our goals to be as inclusive as possible for all of the populations we serve.”

Applications will be reviewed by a committee composed of Admissions staff and processed through Academic Works at
