Class of 2013 MPS Public Scholars

Milwaukee Public Schools students are invited to apply for an MPS Public Scholars college scholarship, an honor that provides selected graduates with a $5,000 scholarship to attend a public college or university in the state of Wisconsin. Scholarships may be renewed for up to three years pending successful completion of renewal criteria and availability of funding. Download the scholarship application and eligibility form here.

The MPS Public Scholars Program was established in 2009 through generous funding provided by an anonymous donor to the Milwaukee Public Schools Foundation, Inc. for Milwaukee Public Schools students, as a show of support for public education in Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin, and in hopes that others will consider donating to the scholarship fund for students in the Milwaukee Public Schools.
