WHAT IS THE FUND FOR WISCONSIN SCHOLARS GRANT?
The Fund for Wisconsin Scholars program provides grants to randomly selected students attending a four-year UW System university. Their mission is to help make higher education more accessible and degree completion more achievable by reducing financial barriers and student loan debt in Wisconsin.
WHY A PEER MENTORING PROGRAM?
Peer mentors are here to help you navigate your first year at UW-Parkside. Your peer mentor is a returning Parkside student and recipient of the Fund for Wisconsin Scholars grant. Your peer mentor can help answer questions about the grant, academics, and financial aid, and can connect you to various resources on our campus.
