Predominantly white institutions (PWIs) are still common in the US, making college campuses feel inaccessible for many students of color.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one such example in which 65.1% of students are white, followed by just 6.59% Asian students, 5.46% Hispanic or Latino students, and just 2.06% African American or Black students. To foster more diversity and inclusion in the student body, BIPOC students must be uplifted.
This scholarship aims to encourage diversity at the University of Wisconsin-Madison by supporting BIPOC students.
Any BIPOC undergraduate student attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison may apply for this scholarship.
