Electroweak scattering of neutrinos with hadronic targets reveal the underlying structure of protons and neutrons. Electroweak structure functions for nucleon targets are reviewed in the context of muon and tau neutrino and antineutrino scattering. Quantum chromodynamic, target mass and quark mass corrections and the regimes where they are relevant are discussed. In future experiments in the Large Hadron Collider forward region at CERN, there are prospects for future measurements for neutrino and antineutrino energies in the 100’s of GeV to TeV energy regime with a large flux of as well as the electron and muon flavors. At lower energies, DUNE will probe structure functions at the boundary of perturbative and nonperturbative regimes.
