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 at Washington County students achieve their goal of earning a college degree.
Thanks to four decades of generous community support, the Washington County Campus Foundation has been able to award over $3 million in scholarships during the last twenty-two years alone. This generosity has helped more than 1,700 deserving students launch their college careers. The Foundation is able to do this through donations from individuals who attend events, respond to direct mail appeal, and who generously create scholarships for a particular interest that they may have in higher education.
The Washington County Campus Foundation distributes scholarships from over 50 funds and makes over 75 awards each year. Scholarships are awarded to students based on their:
- achievement in school or
- financial need or
- interest in certain fields such as
- involvement in extracurricular activity or
- community involvement
The scholarship range is from $300 each year to $12,500 for students who attend UWM at Washington County and transfer to a four year school to finish their degree. The Foundation scholarships address a wide range of interests and needs. Please apply if you plan to attend UWM at Washington County.
