I have been studying voice privately for eight years now, and I think I made more progress with the UW-Superior Music faculty in just two semesters than I had in my previous seven years. I am so proud of how far I have come and I am so excited to keep working next year. I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without the generosity that has been shown to me through Foundation scholarships. Music and singing are my passion, and I will not forget that the reason I am even able to attend this amazing school and pursue that passion is because of your generosity. Thank you Foundation donors.

Foundation donors have made my dreams come true by helping me financially get to my goal of being an early childhood educator. The support is beyond gracious and I am forever thankful. At UW-Superior I have learned to be self-reliant, grateful for every opportunity, and to truly see the value in my education. It has been a financial struggle for me and my family, and when I told them about the award we shed tears of joy. The support of the scholarship contributes to my love of UW-Superior, the opportunities I have had and the accomplishments I have made, and allows me to focus harder on my studies. Thank you so much.

The scholarship award I received is a great help as it lets me know I am moving in the right direction and that all my hard work is paying off. I came to UW-Superior as a very dependent person, but have become independent with so much potential and many goals. I will continue to work hard, and am thankful for the generosity and support. Because of Foundation donors, I hope to one day make some student happy the way I have.

As a native Superiorite, I've always appreciated UW-Superior, and I started my time on campus by taking piano and violin lessons for as long as I can remember. I've always known this was the right place for me. Having such wonderful support through scholarships from generous donors has been crucial for me. If it weren't for the peace of mind the support brings, I don't think I could have done as well. Thank you for your support!

Becoming an elementary teacher has been my dream for as long as I can remember.
