Freshman Scholarships: No Application Required
The Pioneer Pledge is committed to covering all tuition and fees (not including room and board) for incoming freshmen who are Wisconsin residents and are Pell Grant eligible. This scholarship is guaranteed and requires no additional application.

Incoming first-year students are automatically considered for a merit scholarship. Your qualification is based on either your cumulative high school GPA and ACT/SAT score, OR, solely on your cumulative high school GPA. You are not required to submit a test score to be considered for the scholarship. If you submit a test score, we will automatically calculate your eligibility with and without the score and will always award the highest amount possible.
The charts provide a general estimation for merit awards. Use our online Cost Calculator to more accurately estimate merit scholarship eligibility and financial aid options.
Students classified as non-resident for tuition purposes and meet the criteria for a merit scholarship award may also receive a non-resident scholarship.
This scholarship is renewable as long as you maintain good standing with the university.
Non-resident includes states other than Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Residents of Illinois and Iowa are reviewed for Tri-State Initiative eligibility, and residents of Minnesota are eligible to receive the reciprocity tuition rate.
