Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary Jo Read Undergraduate Scholarship

The Mary Jo Read Geography Fund, with estimated assets of more than $1 million, will benefit students in the Department of Geography by providing scholarships, fellowships, and merit awards to students who demonstrate academic excellence in the field. Specifically, the fund earmarks this scholarship for juniors and seniors with a declared major in Geography at UWM.

Criteria for this scholarship include:

  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Junior or Senior standing by August 31, 2024
  • Full-time enrollment
  • Financial need may be considered but is not required

Applications are typically accepted in Spring semester, typically between February and April. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2024 are for Fall 2024; students graduating in May or August 2024 are not eligible.
