The Sentry Insurance Foundation will award four $2,500 scholarships annually to new, first-year students who are dependents of Sentry associates and planning to attend UWSP for the fall 2022 semester following their high school graduation. Sentry Dependent Scholarship applications are due to the UWSP Office of Financial Aid and Veteran Services by 4:30pm on April 1, 2022.
Sentry Dependent Scholarship recipients will qualify for automatic renewal if they maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, carry a minimum of 12 credits per semester, and demonstrate continued extracurricular community and/or campus involvement. Scholarships can be renewed for three continuous years at UWSP.
New and Current Students
Awards ranging from a minimum of $2,500 to a maximum of $10,000 will be made to UWSP undergraduate degree-seeking students to recognize underrepresented and underserved students who have overcome adversity, demonstrated financial need, and possess records of merit that include strong academic performance, significant personal achievements, and service to their communities. Students who received the scholarship last year are eligible to receive the award again if the need is still present. The deadline to submit the application plus all required supporting materials is Friday, May 13th, 2022.
Most academic departments also have scholarship money available, both for new freshmen and continuing students in their second, third and fourth years of college. Students are encouraged to contact the department of their intended major to explore these additional scholarship possibilities.
