Wisconsin is not just a place where delicious cheese is made. Wisconsin is also a place where students have to go to college, and find a way to pay for it. Scholarships are very often the only way that some students will be able to afford to pay for their college educations. In the state of Wisconsin, there are certainly students who need scholarships. Student loans only pay for a limited amount of the cost, and freshmen receive less than upperclassmen. This means that to get to the point that students are eligible for more in federal student loans, which they must manage to pay for the first two years first. This can create quite a conundrum without scholarships. Very often, students will find that different states will offer scholarships that are not offered to students or residents in any other state. In the state of Wisconsin this is true like it is for anywhere else.
