Thanks to generous contributions of donors, the Division of Continuing Studies administers a number of scholarships specifically designed for nontraditional and adult students. While the eligibility criteria vary, there are two main categories of scholarship awards:
Returning Adult Student Scholarships. There are scholarships available to newly admitted or currently enrolled UW-Madison degree students. Some scholarships require a significant interruption in study, or have specific age and gender stipulations. Applications accepted December 1–March 1.
Single Parent Scholarships. These scholarships are available to newly admitted or currently enrolled UW-Madison degree students who are single parents; and scholarships provide $1,000-$2,000 in funding support per academic year. Applications accepted December 1–March 1.
