When: Apply by Aug. 1 for $250 fall 2008 scholarship

More info: Contact Diane Doudna at 836-3819 or doudnadn@uwec.edu

Each fall and spring semester, a $250 scholarship is awarded to a UW-Eau Claire classified staff member who is employed at least half time at the university and enrolled as a student at an accredited higher education institution.

Those qualified for the fall 2008 scholarship are encouraged to apply by 4:30 p.m. Aug. 1 by submitting (1) a brief summary of the employee/student's employment history and education background; (2) a brief statement describing the fall coursework and how it will benefit the employee/student; and (3) two letters of recommendation. Submit applications to Barb Bowers, Human Resources.

The UW-Eau Claire Foundation's Classified Staff Grant Fund, which supports the scholarship, was created by Susie Warden, who retired in March after 29 years as a UW-Eau Claire classified employee, and Linda Haag, who retired in 2004 after working as a UW-Eau Claire classified staff member for almost 37 years. Both women completed bachelor's degrees at UW-Eau Claire while working as full-time members of the university's classified staff. They wanted to make certain other classified staff members had a similar opportunity, so they created the Classified Staff Grant Fund. Go to top of page
