The Wisconsin Women in Government (WWIG) Undergraduate Scholarship program is designed to provide financial support for women who wish to pursue careers in public service, public administration, or governmental affairs. The scholarship is available to current college or university students who likely would have difficulty continuing their education without financial assistance. The purpose of the program is to make post-secondary education more accessible to women by relieving some of the financial burden.

The WWIG Undergraduate Scholarship program is funded through an annual fundraising gala in Madison, Wisconsin.

The deadline for applications is June 14, 2024.

UW System applicants should submit materials directly to WWIG via email at, and Private College and Wisconsin Technical College System applicants should submit their application materials to the financial aid director at their respective schools. Please view the application for full details.
