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.
