Students who apply by May 1 can be considered for need-based scholarships. Students can indicate on their program application that they want to be considered for these additional scholarships. To be eligible for these awards, students must have a 2021-22 FAFSA on file with UW–Madison. Students will be notified in May, 2021 whether they have been awarded a scholarship.

Thanks to generous donor support, over 58 students (40% of participants) were awarded QuickStart scholarships in 2020!

For questions about your FAFSA, contact the UW-Madison Office of Student Financial Aid. They have advisors on staff to answer questions.
