Basque Uruguayans are citizens of Uruguay who are of Basque ancestry.

Although this figure does not imply Basque descent for each individual, it is estimated that up to 10% of Uruguay's population has at least one parent with a Basque surname.[1] The first wave of Basque immigrants to Uruguay came from the French side of the Basque country beginning about 1824.
