Donate to Scholarships and Student Support Initiatives

When you donate to scholarships and student support initiatives, you are supporting one of the university’s highest priorities.

Make a Gift

Scholarships and financial aid resources support students who are accepted to UW-Madison but do not have the sufficient financial resources to enroll and attend the university. As accessibility remains a priority across campus, supporting existing scholarship funds or creating your own scholarship fund opens countless doors and enables students to receive a world-class education at UW-Madison, which would otherwise be out of reach due to financial constraints. Support to scholarships changes the lives of current and future Badgers and allows deserving students, regardless of financial background, the opportunity to succeed both within the classroom and beyond.
