Why Support Student Scholarships?
Supporting scholarships at Madison College provides the crucial financial bridge that makes higher education possible for many students. Scholarship recipients are more able to focus on coursework and participate in extracurricular activities that offer valuable volunteer, internship and leadership experiences.
Establishing a scholarship or giving to an existing scholarship fund helps both individual students and the community, since nine out of ten Madison College graduates will work in the state. Over 80% of graduates will remain in south-central Wisconsin.
How to Support Scholarships
Gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated and can be given to the Smart Future Scholarship Fund, which supports students in all program areas, or designated to a specific scholarship fund that is already established.
Named annual scholarship funds can be established with a minimum gift of $5,000. An endowed scholarship may be established with an initial gift of $20,000 or more. New scholarship funds may be established in the donor’s name or named in honor or memory of an individual or organization.
The Madison College Scholars of Promise program is an initiative giving hope to students who feel that college is out of their reach due to financial barriers. The goal is to help motivated low-income students pursue their education. Support the Scholars of Promise Program
