Students must be admitted to the Fox Cities Campus of UW Oshkosh to be eligible for scholarships through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. If you are not currently a student, we encourage you to apply to the Fox Cities Campus of UW Oshkosh today.

Scholarships are monetary gifts from private donors, local businesses and organizations, and the Fox Cities campus’ annual fundraising event, e.a.t.s. Scholarships are generally awarded based on academic merit, extracurricular activity or intended college major. Some scholarships also require verification of financial need. Therefore, all scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). No repayment of scholarships is required.

Scholarships may be awarded to: 

  • New incoming freshmen
  • New incoming transfer students
  • Returning adult students, age 22 or older
  • Continuing students

    Departing students should review and participate in the scholarship application process with their transfer school. Departing students can also search local community foundations for transfer scholarship opportunities.
