Scholarships play a critical role in helping the university recruit and enroll exceptional students from Wisconsin and beyond. The Chancellor’s Scholarship Program helps to create a more diverse and inclusive learning environment at the UW by providing full-tuition scholarships that attract gifted and talented individuals from underrepresented minority groups. The Chancellor’s Scholarship Program is a highly selective, four-year, merit-based program for undergraduates pursuing any major at the UW.

Scholars are chosen for their demonstrated academic success in high school, the impact of their leadership skills, commitment to volunteer service, and potential to excel in the university’s rigorous educational environment. Today there are more than 240 Chancellor’s Scholars on campus.

Students in the program benefit from individualized advising, a supportive multicultural community network, leadership development, mentorship opportunities, and more. Gifts to this program make a meaningful difference to the UW’s student recruitment efforts, helping the university enroll top students who often have offers from other universities.

Phill and Liz Gross have provided a generous one-to-one match for donors who commit $50,000 or more to an endowed Chancellor’s Scholarship.

Chancellor’s Scholars are enthusiastic learners who emerge as leaders in business, education, medicine, engineering, and other professions. A philanthropic investment in the Chancellor’s Scholarship Program will help academically talented and outstanding young people further the development of their intellectual gifts, abilities, and potential.
