How to win Wisconsin scholarships

Wisconsin is home to natural beauty as it borders two of the Great Lakes. The “Badger State” is famous for cheese production and being the stomping grounds of the Green Bay Packers. Therefore, it is understandable that you are curious about winning Wisconsin scholarships in order to live and study in this beautiful state with so much to offer. 

Winning Wisconsin scholarships can be a reality if you highlight your interests while simultaneously emphasizing the unique aspects of Wisconsin that make it such a great state to live in. This can be done by applying for Wisconsin scholarships that are niche to your particular interests. 

For example, perhaps you enjoy cooking using fresh dairy products from a local Wisconsin farm which led you down a path towards culinary school. Or maybe hiking and swimming around Lake Michigan spurred an interest in becoming a park ranger. Whatever your personal interests, connect it back to your life as a Wisconsinite (or hopeful future Wisconsinite) in order to help you stand out in the applicant pool! Highlighting Wisconsin as the perfect place to continue your education is the best thing you can do in order to win Wisconsin scholarships. 

Writing resources for writing Wisconsin scholarship essays

Wisconsin scholarships may have you write an essay about yourself. These scholarship essays can vary in length from 250 words up to 500 words. Therefore, make a point to read over our Scholarships360 ultimate guide to finding and winning scholarships to ensure you are well prepared to not only reply to these Wisconsin scholarships but also win them! Additionally, check out our guides on how to start a scholarship essay and how to end a scholarship essay to ensure your Wisconsin scholarship application is flawless. 

Wisconsin student debt snapshot

According to the Department of Education, in total, Wisconsin residents owe $23.2 billion in federal student loan debt. Student borrowers owe an average of $31,894 each (those numbers do not include private loans). Around 57.7% of loan borrowers are under the age of 35. As you are starting your higher education journey, remember that scholarships allow students to take fewer loans. Make sure that you apply to as many scholarships as you qualify for!

Consider in-state tuition and tuition reciprocity

In-state tuition allows residents of a state to receive cheaper tuition for a college or university in their state. Additionally, many universities and colleges reserve scholarships and financial aid for in-state students, which helps reduce the cost of attending college for those who live there.

Here are a few well-known Wisconsin universities and their in-state vs out-of-state tuition costs:
University of Wisconsin-Madison

  • In-state tuition: $11,216
  • Out-of-state tuition: $40,612

University of Wisconsin-La Crosse

  • In-state tuition: $9,773
  • Out-of-state tuition: $18,813

How do you get in-state tuition? 

Receiving in-state tuition in Wisconsin can help cut the cost of tuition by more than half. In order to qualify as a Wisconsin resident for tuition purposes, you must qualify as a bona fide resident of Wisconsin for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the beginning of the semester. However, it is important to note that if you come to Wisconsin primarily for educational purposes you generally do not qualify as Wisconsin residents for tuition purposes even after living in Wisconsin for a year or more. Be sure to double check with your intended Wisconsin college to learn about their specific requirements for residency. 

Does Wisconsin offer tuition reciprocity
