UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

Scholarships – Investing in Student Success

With more than $2 million awarded in scholarships each year, UW-River Falls continues to be among the top scholarship providers in the UW System. We’re committed to offering need and merit-based scholarships to students with a history of strong academic performance – with or without test scores. 

UWRF awards first-year scholarships based on a comprehensive review of criteria including your history of academic performance, background and experiences, financial need, leadership, and potential to enrich the campus community.
