About the UREC Student Employee Scholarship

The UREC student employee experience is one full of challenge, support, growth and community. UREC alumni know the positive impact that fully engaging as a student employee can have on one's career and life. Future scholarships awarded annually can help relieve some financial burden for student employees, so that they can continue the tradition of excellence and Motivate Madison into Motion.

Over 110 dedicated UREC employee alumni have pledged their support. As of April 2018, the fund hit $50,000, and the interest will provide scholarships annually to one or more student employees each year. Thank you to all of our donors, especially the UREC 96ers!
