The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Foundation has informed Chancellor Gary L. Miller that it is releasing $720,700 in named endowed and annual scholarship funds which will be available to award students for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Alumni and donors to the University consistently demonstrate through their giving that helping students through scholarship support is one their favorite charitable activities. Scholarships give students a motivational boost, letting them know others care about them and support their educational pursuits. Merit scholarships reward hard-working students with a track record of success. Need-based scholarships provide financial assistance to students demonstrating financial need.
