Past Scholarship Award Recipients

2019 Scholarship Recipients

We are excited to announce the selection of our 2019 scholarship recipients.  Our Chapter represents more than 40,000 Milwaukee and Ozaukee-area alumni. Scholarship support is made possible through generous donations and special event fundraising. Since 1997, we have awarded more than $500,000 in student scholarships to more than 250 students from our area. We believe that a UW–Madison education should be possible for everyone, regardless of their background or financial situation. We are committed to helping future alumni realize their potential by becoming Badgers.

In 2019, the Scholarship Committee selected 11 worthy scholars who are from Milwaukee or Ozaukee County and will attend the University of Wisconsin – Madison this fall.  Congratulations to all of the recipients and welcome to the Badger family!
