Do you want to honor a favorite professor?
We have funds that are named in honor of or in memory of many of our dedicated professors. Please contact me to see if your favorite professor already has a fund in his/her honor.

Did you attend the Milwaukee State Teachers College (UWM’s predecessor institution) and want to honor that group of high-achieving alumni?

Your gift to the Milwaukee State Teachers College Scholarship Fund helps show your appreciation for your education and your desire to help the next generation of aspiring teachers.

Do you want to say ‘thank you’ to the School of Education?

The School of Education General Fund allows us to be responsive to unanticipated initiatives to help move the school forward. The School of Education General Scholarship Fund is another option. This fund allows us to offer scholarships and fellowships to a variety of academically successful students who need assistance with their educational expenses.


Establishing an Endowed Fund

Thank you for your interest in setting up a permanent fund to support students, degree programs, new initiatives, and more. You can establish a fund which might honor a family member or former professor:

  • With a $20,000 gift for unrestricted support for scholarships or the school
  • With a $40,000 gift for restricted support for scholarships or the school, which you and the school can define.

Payments can be made over a period of time, usually three to five years. Once the fund reaches the permanent endowed fund level, earnings support scholarships.

Please contact me for more information, or to discuss creative ways to establish an endowed fund in your name, or in honor of an important person in your life.
