Supporting Single Parents Through the Madison College Foundation
Madison College supports students in their various roles and responsibilities in their lives and communities. Single parents are juggling responsibilities at home and at school. These individuals are working hard to create a better life and being a role model for their children while they pursue their educational goals. Madison College supports these students in many ways, including an on-campus daycare center.
The Way to Go Scholarship supports students who are single parents.
The following scholarships support students who are single parents. If you are interested in establishing a scholarship, you can learn more here. We would love to have a conversation about next steps.
This scholarship is available for Full-time Associate Degree Nursing program students with a 2.5 GPA or higher. Applicants must be Dane county residents and preferably single parents or children of single parents.
This scholarship is available for single parents, expectant mothers or minority students enrolled at Madison College.
The scholarship was established to honor Nancy’s mother, Wilma E. Meyer, who passed away on Wednesday, September 28, 2011. She always valued higher education and promoted it. Higher education provides value to the individual in that it generally increases their earnings over someone who does not have a college degree. Higher education provides a broad knowledgebase, critical thinking skills and reference points for discussion of politics, entertainment, art and history. She valued Madison College, and her grandson, William Norwell and his wife, Brittany (Anderson) Norwell graduated from here.
This scholarship is given to single parents with at least a 2.5 GPA, enrolled in at least 6 credits.
