The University Foundation: UW-Marshfield/Wood County provides financial support for students, faculty and staff, and various campus programs and activities: scholarships, technology, professional development, and emerging campus needs.
The University Foundation funds an array of scholarships for new, continuing and part-time UW-Marshfield/Wood County students each year. For the 2012-13 academic year, the University Foundation awarded 53 scholarships totaling nearly $51,994 to students attending UW-Marshfield/Wood County. Both merit and need-based scholarships are available. The next scholarship deadline is March 15, 2014.
The continual development of new computer and instructional technology has greatly enhanced the educational environment. Also, it has added the greatest cost of doing business. The Foundation's Technology Fund is an additional resource for the campus to use as it updates both hardware and software systems to provide a prime learning experience for our students.
Professional Development Fund
Learning is a life-long activity. In order for our faculty and staff to stay current in developments in their field and to become familiar with new approaches to teaching, they must attend conferences, workshops and other educational offerings, often at their own expense. The Foundation's Professional Development Fund helps defray these expenses.
A special fund used for campus enhancement and emerging needs.
