Achieve your goal of earning a college degree

Since 1968, our local campus has been the critical first step for area students aspiring to earn a college degree.  Because UWM-WC is a branch of UW-Milwaukee, it is an ideal university entry point since it allows students to remain in their community, pay lower tuition and attend smaller classes taught directly by professors instead of teaching assistants. The Washington County Campus Foundation was founded in 1976 by forward thinking community leaders who understood the importance of a university education.  By providing scholarships for new freshmen, returning sophomores and students transferring to a four year school, the Foundation assists UWM-WC students achieve their goal of earning a college degree.

What We Do

The Washington County Campus Foundation strives to make college possible for anyone who is qualified to attend the UW-Washington County. The Foundation encourages academic excellence by providing grants to faculty to conduct research and share their findings with their academic peers. The Foundation supports its work through contributions from individuals and events to provide scholarships for students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to attend college.
This website is made possible in part by a grant from The Nonprofit Management Fund.

“I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that?”
