Wisconsin residents may be well known for wearing ‘cheese heads’ at Lambeau Field, but the state is also a popular destination for students. Its ‘Wisconsin Idea’ promotes advancing not only universities in the state, but also using the research from these institutions to better the lives of the citizens of Wisconsin. It’s no surprise that there are several scholarships for Wisconsin residents to help pay for college or grad school. Even if you aren’t a current resident of Wisconsin but plan to attend a school in the state, such as the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Milwaukee, Stevens Point, or Eau Claire, the Medical College of Wisconsin, or Marquette University, you may also be qualified for these scholarships for Wisconsin students.
