Matching Dollar Scholarship Program

Since 1967, WAA's alumni chapters around the world have awarded more than $10 million to UW-Madison students. The Matching Dollar Scholarship Program, developed by WAA and funded by the UW Foundation, matches donations from local alumni and friends. Scholarships are generally awarded in the spring, but each chapter operates its own scholarship program, so find the chapter nearest your hometown to find out more about its particular program. Chapter scholarships must be submitted via the online transmittal form. No hard copies will be accepted.For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
