Washington County Campus Foundation

Washington County Campus Foundation

The WCCF is dedicated to ensuring that students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Washington County benefit from scholarships and other financial support. Each year, the WCCF awards over $160,000 in scholarships to students from every walk of life. Our dream is to be able to give every student a better opportunity to attend college at UWM at Washington County by giving them each a scholarship. 

  • 97% of our students have full or part-time jobs.
  • 63% of our students rely on financial aid or scholarships to pay tuition costs. 
  • 48% of our students are of the first generation in their family to attend college. 

We believe we are helping create a better community by giving students access to the education that will make them better citizens, neighbors, and employees.

University Ambassadors 

The University Ambassadors play a vital role in acquainting the public with the cultural and artistic offerings of UWM at Washington County. They also work closely with local government agencies to make them aware of the benefits that the campus brings to our entire community.

The Ambassadors help build a sense of community that brings students, staff and faculty together. Opening and closing all-campus picnics are sponsored by the Ambassadors as are events welcoming new faculty and staff to the community. Their support has helped the campus achieve its record enrollments and outstanding retention of first-year students.
