Our student scholars shine brightly

| Gretchen Hutterli

The College of Business Scholarship Recognition Luncheon will be held Friday, December 1, 2017 at 12 noon in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Davies Center Dakota Ballroom. The annual event, which will be hosted by Interim COB Dean Tim Vaughan, recognizes scholarship donors and the college's best and brightest students.

Over 100 College of Business student were awarded a scholarship or award last year. Awards range from $100 (Jerry DuBois Memorial Scholarship) to Wisconsin in-state tuition and fees for an academic year (Philip Breitman Memorial Scholarship). We wish to thank the many donors who have made these scholarships possible.
