Scholarship Deadlines Approaching

January 27, 2016

At the UW-Platteville Distance Learning Center, we aim to support our students both inside the classroom and out. This includes providing you with information on scholarship opportunities that can help pay for your education. With deadlines approaching soon, you are encouraged to apply now.

Typically, these scholarships require an application form, résumé, and essay, along with other eligibility requirements. You can find more scholarship opportunities on our scholarships page; however, we wanted to highlight a few that are only available to UW-Platteville distance learning students.

  • The Dawn Drake Excellence in Distance Education Scholarship was founded to recognize the role distance education has played in Dawn Drake’s life. As the Executive Director of Alternative Delivery Systems, Drake has seen the many sacrifices that distance learners make to balance education, career, and family and was inspired to create a scholarship fund to support a student each year. The application due date for this $500 award is February 15, 2016.
  • The Distance Education Alumni Board Scholarship is sponsored by alumni who choose to give back to UW-Platteville and help a new generation of online students succeed. There are two $300 scholarships available and the application due date is March 1, 2016.
  • The Ruth Miller Distance Education Challenge Scholarship was established by business administration alumnus Ruth Miller. This $750 award is available to students who have a situation similar to Ruth’s own student experience – they must be a new transfer student to the UW-Platteville Business Administration program and should submit an essay describing the challenges they must overcome to pursue their degree. Applications for this award are due February 15, 2016.

There are many other scholarships and awards available through our partner organizations such as the National Science Foundation, the Project Management Institute, and more. You can also find additional financial aid information.
