Scholarship campaign


  • Donor-selected scholarships

    So many people have been impacted by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in different ways. For many, it was the academic program that they studied or taught. For others, it was a special faculty or staff member who served as a mentor and guide during their time here. Or maybe there were special opportunities like the chance to study abroad, participate in a research project, or serve in a leadership role in a student organization.

    How you can help

    Support your passion! There are so many different ways you can help. Let us help you create a gift opportunity you will be proud of that matches your interests and values. Please consider establishing a scholarship fund through the UW-L Foundation that will provide assistance to students in the area that means the most to you.

We love the idea of setting up a scholarship fund for education students at my alma mater. We know our gift will one day make a huge difference for those that follow in our footsteps.”

    “These scholarships have come at a time right when I’m finding myself on the edge of knowing I can’t possibly work any harder and something has to give in order to keep going. This money could be a real means to ensure I can still get to school and finish something I have worked so hard for.”
