TRIO Scholarships
  
Overview of Scholarships  

 
The EOA Scholarship link is open and accessible through the EOA website. Wisconsin is eligible for the following 7 scholarships (5 EOA Scholarships and 2 WAEOPP Scholarships). This is a great opportunity to recognize our students for their academic achievements, involvement in their community and/or their ability to share how TRIO/EOP has impacted their lives.

All EOA MEMBERS are encouraged to nominate students for the variety of scholarships available. Please review the Scholarship Action Plans as they will help students in completing the nomination materials and apply for scholarships. Since the EOA Scholarships are due by March 31st, the WAEOPP SCHOLARSHIP has been moved up to March 31st. This will allow students to be eligible for all scholarships not just the WAEOPP scholarships.
