Low-interest, short-term loans to assist students in emergency situations are available from the SVM or the Student Financial Aid Office and are usually repaid within the semester they are borrowed.
In order to be eligible for scholarships, loans, or awards offered by the SVM, it is necessary to submit completed financial aid information to the Student Financial Aid Office by the appropriate deadline. Scholarships range from $100 to $5,000 per award with more than $150,000 awarded each year. The specific eligibility requirements, deadlines, and applications are distributed each fall to students enrolled in the SVM.
National, state, institutional, and private scholarships, loans, and awards are also available. Applications and deadlines vary for each funding source. Further information is available through the Office of Academic Affairs.
Applicants are encouraged to identify funding sources in addition to those available through the UW-Madison Student Financial Aid Office and the SVM. Examples of such funding sources include family, local scholarship or loan organizations, and local civic groups.
