As if saving lives wasn’t enough, these UW physicians saved Danish studies at the College of Letters & Science with a gift from the heart.
Dr. Paul Madsen, professor emeritus in urology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and his wife, Dr. Renate Madsen, recently honored their family’s Danish and German heritage by establishing the Paul and Renate Madsen Professorship in Danish in the College of Letters & Science. This Professorship will encourage scholarship and research to preserve the university’s historic strengths in Danish studies.
The scholarships I have received from the School of Music and the Raymond F. Dvorak Scholarship have been very important for my family. The financial assistance provided through these scholarships really have been of much use in reducing the net cost of my schooling and that has allowed me to be able to continue experiencing all of these great things that I have been able to do up here at UW, so I am extremely thankful!
Without the Hilldale Undergraduate Research Grant at UW-Madison, I would not have had the freedom and resources to start myself on this trajectory when I did, and I may not have found my way to the creative and exciting field I work in today.
Thanks to these scholarships, I have been able to further my love of Brazilian music, develop a better understanding of the Portuguese language, and connect with people across the university and country that I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to connect with.
