Funding Opportunities

Where to Start?

Funding a college education takes careful planning and often requires tapping a variety of financial resources.  Some good places to start on campus would be the UWT Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Student Fellowships and Awards, where experts can assist you with financial aid, scholarship, and fellowship options that may be open to you.

On this page, we will provide links to funding opportunities that may be especially relevant to Undergraduate students at UWT!
