Thanks to Great People Scholarships, the best and brightest students—regardless of socioeconomic status—can now attend the UW-Madison. Joining in the effort is the Wisconsin Alumni Association, which supports Great People Scholarships through its annual Red Shirt program. Proceeds from the sales of these popular t-shirts help fund several scholarships.
Biochemistry major Asimina Pappas is on track for a pharmacy career, while the Great People Scholarship allows Maipa Thao to focus on her studies as she pursues a dream of becoming a nurse. Tressa Franzmeier appreciates the choices the scholarship provides and is grateful that donors are willing to invest in the university and its students. The scholarships are an affirmation and inspiration, Alyssa Sage said. “I hope to show my appreciation by making my education worth the while and performing well.”
