Supplementing tuition costs

The Barron County Campus Foundation, Inc. provides scholarship opportunities through the generosity of area businesses and individuals, community organizations, alumni and campus faculty and staff interested in the educational progress of UW-BC students. Each year the UW-Barron County Foundation, Inc. provides thousands of dollars in scholarships to first year, continuing, and transferring students and Return-to-Learn Scholarships for new returning adult students.

Scholarships are monetary gifts from community, private, and campus sources and are usually based on academic merit or some other criteria. 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). Campus foundations, local businesses, and other sources provide scholarships for students at the University. No repayment of scholarships is required.

Contact your high school counselor and/or the UW-Eau Claire – Barron County Solution Center for more scholarship information.
