What is eScholarship?

eScholarship is a chance for Winona State students to win a $1,000 scholarship! It's easy and fun!

Aspen Capital, in partnership with Winona State University, provides the latest mobile devices and technology to Winona State students.

A key component of the partnership established between Aspen Capital and WSU includes Aspen’s commitment to give back to the University. Accordingly, Aspen Capital is pleased to provide scholarships for the 2021-2022 e-Warrior Aspen Capital eScholarship events. This year Aspen Capital has generously donated $23,000 enabling us to provide 23 students with a $1,000 scholarship for the e-Warrior: Digital Life & Learning Program. These scholarships will be awarded through five different eScholarship competitions.

TIMELINE: January 1st - March 31st, 2022. More info on this below.

This Year's Theme

This year's theme is THE FUTURE OF LEARNING.

  • Who will be learning at WSU?
  • How will we learn at WSU?
  • What environments and tools will support learning at WSU?
