Academic Excellence Scholarship Program
Wisconsin College Scholarships Based on Graduation G.P.A.
Every high school is allowed to issue at least one Wisconsin Academic Excellence Scholarship, or more based upon total student enrollment.
The Academic Excellence Scholarship is awarded to each school’s top students based on the highest grade point average (G.P.A.) at the time of graduation. The scholarship is funded 50-50 by the state of Wisconsin and the college or university the student(s) attends.
The scholarship is used to offset tuition costs by $1,125 per semester for up to 8 semesters.
The award recipient must be enrolled in a University of Wisconsin campus, Wisconsin Technical College or eligible independent college or university within the state by September 30th of the following academic year. Failure to do so or attending an out of state school will lead to forfeiture of the scholarship award.
