Support local students
Each year the Bay Area Badgers award tuition assistance scholarships to selected Bay Area students who attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During the year, we depend on the generosity of Bay Area Badgers like you to make this scholarship program possible. This is a great way to spread the name of the University of Wisconsin, and encourage students from the Bay Area to attend our great university.
2018 Bay Area Badgers Scholarship Winners
Katelien Blumenthal – I chose to attend UW-Madison because of the student body’s energy and care for the large school community exemplified through academics, athletics, service, travels, and varied clubs and organizations. I am especially drawn to the university’s commitment to providing research for all of their students. I am excited to collaborate with many peers to develop an understanding of my studies outside of the classroom. Proud to be a badger!
Nomita Chandra – I chose to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison because of it’s amazing BME program which is focused around innovation and teamwork. Being from the Bay Area, I was nervous to attend a university in another state, but as soon as I stepped on the campus, it felt like home. I’m so excited to spend the next four year pursing BME at such a beautiful school!
Sophia Krivoruchko – I chose University of Wisconsin, Madison because it offered so much of what I was looking for in my college experience. First of all, the school offered amazing environmental studies and sustainability programs which fit my long term interests in helping our environment and the world. Secondly, I am a competitive rower and the University of Wisconsin offered a top tier division I women’s rowing program where I can compete at the highest level. Lastly, I absolutely fell in love with the spirit and energy around the University of Wisconsin and the amazing city that surrounds it. I am beyond excited about becoming a Badger and I want to thank the Bay Area Badgers Committee for selecting me to receive this scholarship! I look forward to attending in the fall 🙂
