Graduate & Extended Learning expands UWL’s role in serving Wisconsin, through our work with pre-college youth and with our adult, professional, and continuing education programs.
We are highlighting two giving opportunities during One Day for UWL.
The Youth Programs Fund supports a variety of youth enrichment programs managed by Graduate & Extended Learning. For example:
Kids’ College –250 5th and 6th graders from rural schools come to UWL for high-quality and engaging learning - and a glimpse of the college experience
Hands-On Science – 70+ middle schoolers spend two days on campus in the summer, learning from UWL instructors about topics ranging from occupational therapy to electricity to making their own bouncy balls.
Junior Science & Humanities Symposium – High school students from Wisconsin and upper Michigan create and present original research - and compete for more than $5000 in regional scholarships plus the chance to go on to the national competition.
The 3 Minute Grad Project Fund supports the scholarships awarded in our annual competition. 3 Minute Grad Project challenges students to share their passion for their area of study in a 3-minute talk, using a single slide. A digital timer counts down the seconds, and any student who hasn’t finished by the time it hits zero is automatically disqualified.
