OMSA EXCELLENCE SCHOLARSHIP

 

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA) is committed to the recruitment, retention, and graduation of underrepresented students. Our mission is to holistically support underrepresented students in their success while fostering a culture of belonging, recognition, and equity at UW-Parkside. 

This year, OMSA will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary. As a part of the 40-year celebration, the OMSA Excellence Annual Scholarship has been created. In alignment with the mission of the office, this scholarship will assist in the recruitment and retention of historically underrepresented students at UW-Parkside. 

In order to award this scholarship on an annual basis, we seek to raise $2,000.00 each year. We hope you will join us in celebrating this milestone year with a gift to the scholarship. Thank you for supporting student success at UW-Parkside.
