Find rewards for your achievements

Scholarships are monetary gifts from community, private, and campus sources and are usually based on academic merit or other criteria. Some scholarships also require verification of financial need. All scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Campus foundations, local businesses, and other sources provide scholarships for students at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Richland. No repayment of scholarships is required.

Richland Promise 

All new freshman students taking at least 12 credits per semester will be eligible for a minimum $1,200 full-year scholarship through the Richland Promise program of the Richland County Campus Foundation. Before completing their enrollment, all admitted incoming students will be directed to the UW-Platteville Richland Scholarship Application

Other Scholarship Awards 

In addition to the Richland Promise, awards for qualified students, including incoming freshmen, are also available as part of the regular annual scholarship process. To receive additional scholarship funds, admitted students must submit the UW-Platteville Richland Scholarship Application by the spring deadline of April 8, 2021. 

All awarded funding for both new and continuing students is split to cover both fall and spring semesters. Students must remain full-time (12 or more credits per semester) and in good academic standing to receive full awards.
