And on April 4, Dean Diana Hess led the School’s annual awards ceremony to honor this year’s recipients.

UW-Madison began revitalizing the summer experience in 2016 with a significant increase in scholarship funding. The goal was to encourage more students to take advantage of accelerated summer courses so they could graduate on time and avoid the expense of extra semesters. Building on these successes in 2018, UW–Madison will serve a wider range of students during the summer months. Current undergraduates, incoming freshmen, students visiting from other institutions, high school students, and others will benefit from the university’s world-class resources.
