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 220 UREC employee alumni, staff, and students have donated to this fund. As of April 2018, the fund hit $50,000, and the interest now provides scholarships annually to several student employees each year. Thank you to all of our donors, especially the wonderful UREC 96ers!

Endowment Principal Value  (August 2020): $87,884.49

Total Scholarships Awarded to date: $4,800
