Acting now can make a real difference.
Your gift to the Great People Scholarship today will ensure that qualified students admitted to the University of Wisconsin-Madison have a chance to pursue their educational goals at a world-class university.
Students’ fears about the rising costs of higher education are real. Tuition costs have risen dramatically as state support has declined. In addition, UW-Madison offers the lowest level of scholarship aid of any institution in the Big Ten. That’s why the University is asking its friends and alumni to commit now to the Great People Scholarship Campaign.
The Great People Scholarship supports students who will solve the problems of today, and make the discoveries that will improve our society and economy in the future. The Great People Scholarship supports undergraduates across disciplines: bacteriologists who are developing homegrown sources of bioenergy, linguists who will help to create a new era of world diplomacy, neuroscientists who are unlocking the mysteries of the human brain . . . including the secret to happiness.
Do you believe in the promise of an affordable, accessible education? Do you appreciate the strength of the University’s diverse intellectual and socioeconomic student body, where undergraduates learn how to live and lead in the real world? Make your commitment today to the Great People Scholarship. Your gift can be matched dollar for dollar by the University of Wisconsin Foundation.
