The Washington County Campus Foundation (WCCF) is the official fundraising entity for the University of Wisconsin -Washington County.
Each year, the WCCF awards over $150,000 in scholarships to students from every walk of life. Applications are due in February annually. To determine which scholarships you are eligible for, please review the UW-WC Scholarship List.
The WCCF is dedicated to ensuring that our students benefit from scholarships and other forms of financial support. Our dream is to be able to tell every student that they are deserving of a scholarship, but we need your help. Our students are extremely hardworking, with 97% working a full or part-time job in addition to school, and 63% relying on financial aid or scholarships to pay tuition costs. Also, 48% of our students are the first generation in their family to attend college, and they need your help.
Meet some of our scholarship winners!
Meet Elizabeth, an 18-year-old student currently attending UW-Washington County. She was a scholarship recipient for both the 2013-14 and 2014-15 academic terms, and plans to attend UW-Green Bay in the fall as a junior majoring in Communication. She would like to pursue a career in either Public Relations or Human Resources Management. When asked about how scholarships have impacted her life, she explained, "I wouldn't be here if it weren't for the generous scholarship donations provided by community members. For me, scholarships are the difference between buying my textbooks and going to the doctor."
