Our Opportunities

To view a list of Winona State University scholarship opportunities, click “Ours” under “Opportunities” above. This list shows all scholarships in the system, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration.

• Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means no additional action after completing the General Application is required for consideration.
• The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.
• Click into an opportunity to see eligibility criteria and any additional question or essay requirements that will be needed for application submission.

Please Note: Listed opportunities are for the 2021/2022 academic year.

For detailed instructions, download our How To Apply To WSU Foundation Scholarships and Scholarships FAQ. If you have additional questions, contact wsuscholarships@winona.edu.

Keyword examples – your major, minor, department, college/school, class level, nontraditional, veteran, LGBTQ, hometown, volunteer, internship, student org, etc.
