Applicants must be returning adult students with a significant break in their formal education of five or more years. This includes degree-seeking students enrolled less than half-time and non-degree University Special students not eligible for financial aid. (Dissertators and full-time degree seeking students are not eligible.) Student must demonstrate financial need as indicated within the application. Recipients will be selected primarily on the basis of financial need, clearly expressed educational goals and significant interruption (usually five cumulative years or more) in formal education. The balancing of such factors as number of degrees already completed, length of interruption in education, proximity to completion of educational goal, recent academic performance and other indications of potential academic success at UW-Madison will result in the allocation of grants as funds allow.
