The Wisconsin Higher Education Grant (WHEG) Program provides grant assistance to undergraduate, Wisconsin residents enrolled at least half-time in degree or certificate programs at University of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Technical College, and Tribal institutions. Awards are based on financial need. Grants are awarded based on the economic needs of students. The structure of the formula is outlined in Wisconsin State Statutes. There are three components in the formula: (Student Budget – Expected Family Contribution) x Student Award Percentage = Award. The Student Award Percentage is set annually by the HEAB board as part of the formula approval process. Awards are subject to the amount of funds available. Once all the funds are spent, remaining eligible students do not receive awards. The date the student application is received by HEAB determines which eligible students will or will not receive awards. Students can visit the HEAB website regarding eligibility and financial need requirements for each participating Wisconsin institution category.
