Motor City Chapter - How Gifts Make a Difference

MATCHING GIFT AVAILABLE: When you give to support Motor City Chapter during Day of the Badger, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar — up to $3,000 per group — thanks to the George and Dorothy Pellegrin Wisconsin Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment Fund.

An undergraduate degree is increasingly important to a successful future. Years ago, a student could pay for college with a part-time job. But this is no longer the case. Scholarships are critical to attracting the best and brightest students to UW–Madison, many of whom could not earn their degrees without financial assistance. In fact, a recent survey revealed that insufficient financial aid is the deciding factor for 58 percent of high-achieving students who decide not to enroll at UW–Madison. Your gift makes all the difference for these promising students who dream of becoming Badgers. With your generosity, our students have bright futures ahead.

We celebrate scholars’ accomplishments, provide networking opportunities, and help them find internships and jobs. Candidates demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and financial need or special circumstances. We also consider leadership, service, and extracurricular endeavors. Annually, we grant two to four scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $5,000.
