UW-Green Bay Foundation announces more than $700,000 in scholarship funds available for students in 2018-19

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. This sum is four percent higher than a year ago. This total includes five new endowed scholarships. The UW-Green Bay Foundation currently administers 325 endowed and annual scholarship funds.

Increasing access to higher education at UW-Green Bay remains a top priority for the UW-Green Bay Foundation. Endowed scholarship funds grew by more than 17% in calendar year 2017, riding high on the tailwinds of the global investment environment. Growth in endowed funds results in larger scholarship awards in future years. The UW-Green Bay Foundation spending plan allows for the awarding of 4.5% of the asset balance for endowed scholarship funds.

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.
