Scholarships are awarded in various amounts and are based on a number of criteria. Scholarships may be based on things such as academic performance, demonstrated financial need, programs of interest, year in school and other factors.
Federal regulations require us to consider scholarships when calculating a student's financial aid package and eligibility. Therefore, scholarships may potentially reduce other need-based aid. All scholarships should be reported on MyBlugold CampS Self Service Student Center or directly to the Financial Aid office. Every effort will be made to ensure the adjustment is as advantageous as possible to the student, reducing loan or work-study first.
Scholarship checks should be mailed as soon as possible to avoid any delay in posting to the student’s account. All scholarships should include the student's name and Blugold ID number and be mailed to: Blugold Central Student Services | PO Box 5000 | Eau Claire WI 54702-5000

Beware of Scholarship Scams
Don't pay a fee for financial aid or scholarship information. In a current scam, students are receiving a letter that is listing UW-Eau Claire and it appears to be from an official financial aid organization, but it is from a business the UW-Eau Claire does not endorse.
