Dear 8th Grade Families,
I wanted to reach out to remind you about the PEOPLE Program, which is a free pre-college program through the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The program is designed for low-income and potential first-generation college students. These populations have traditionally been overlooked and underserved for college admissions. Their journey in PEOPLE prepares them to be a viable college candidate, apply for admission to, and enroll at the University of Wisconsin System institution, with an emphasis on UW-Madison.
Students who enroll at UW-Madison may be eligible for a four-year tuition scholarship. The application will open on January 25, 2021. There will also be a Zoom Meeting on January 13th at 6 pm to help families learn more about the program.
Please see the attachment for more information. Here is also a short video about the PEOPLE Program:
