Your gift of a scholarship provides vital financial assistance to UW-Parkside students, helping them earn a degree and experience all that UW-Parkside has to offer. But the impact doesn’t end there.
Scholarships are an investment in the future, preparing the scientists, teachers, business leaders, innovators and creators that our communities need for growth and success.
Join the many supporters who invest in student success through the gift of a scholarship at UW-Parkside. We look forward to working with you to create a scholarship opportunity that will have a direct and lasting impact on UW-Parkside students.
FUTURE FOCUS SCHOLARSHIP
The Future Focus Scholarship is a new scholarship initiative of the UW-Parkside Foundation that was created in 2018 as part of UW-Parkside’s 50th Anniversary. The goal of the scholarship program is to reduce student loan debt and help UW-Parkside students reach their goal of graduating with a college degree - including many students in their senior year, whose financial situation could prevent them from graduating. These seniors often leave school because of a financial barrier and do not return to complete their degree, even when they are so close to graduation.
Your support of the Future Focus Scholarship will allow us to benefit more UW-Parkside students in the coming year and for years to come. Thank you for partnering with us to have a significant impact on student graduation and talent development in our region.
Invest in the Future:
An endowed scholarship creates a permanent source of support for students’ educational needs. Your gift is invested with the UW-Parkside Foundation, and only the earnings are used to provide scholarship awards each year.
Create your endowed scholarship with a gift or pledge commitment of $10,000 or more. Pledges may be completed over a period of up to 5 years.
To ensure the scholarship’s long-term health, scholarship awards will begin three years after endowment and/or pledge completion. The scholarship award amount is determined annually based on available fund earnings.
By establishing an annual scholarship, you make a yearly commitment to sustain and encourage UW-Parkside students. Scholarships are awarded as long as you choose to contribute.
Create your annual scholarship with a gift or pledge commitment of $2,000 or more. Pledges may be completed over a period of up to 4 years (minimum $500/year).
