Spring Season Is Scholarship Season
The spring season is scholarship season across campus and in the College of Professional Studies. In the 2010 calendar year, the CPS gave out over $80,000 in scholarships to 131 of our students and the largest of these scholarships was $5,000. As the students are getting ready for summer, it is a good time to reflect on the importance of creating these special opportunities
for students. It is a wonderful thing to know that you can change the life of students. Everyone in the CPS extends a warm thank you for creating these opportunities for UWSP students and we are looking forward to a better future.
