A $25,000 endowed scholarship fund for the Blugold Marching Band has been established with the UW-Eau Claire Foundation by Northwestern Bank in Chippewa Falls. The endowment will generate $1,000 annually for scholarships to UW-Eau Claire students who are active in the UW-Eau Claire Blugold Marching Band and enrolled for the next academic year. Applicants also must be involved in working with high school or middle school band programs in the Chippewa Valley. The scholarships are the result of the October bus crash involving the Chippewa Falls High School marching band and UW-Eau Claire marching band students and alumni. Five people were killed in the crash, including a UW-Eau Claire student and an alumnus. Several UW-Eau Claire students and an alumnus also were injured. Jerry Jacobson, president of Northwestern Bank and a UW-Eau Claire alumnus, said the Northwestern Bank Band Scholarships honor the memory of those lost and the commitment to marching band by all those who were on the bus.

The 2005 Open Doors Report indicates that 452 UW-Eau Claire students studied abroad during the 2003-04 academic year. That's almost 100 more students than any other master's level institution in Wisconsin, according to the report. "Our reputation for offering exceptional study abroad programs is why some students choose to attend to UW-Eau Claire,"said Karl Markgraf, director of the Center for International Education at UW-Eau Claire. "Many of our students have had an international experience before they even get to college and they're ready for more. The quality and diversity of our programs is very appealing to them."
