University of Wisconsin-River Falls Chancellor Maria Gallo kicked off the university’s Giving Day week by establishing a new endowed scholarship for first-generation students interested in pursuing a degree in the sciences, technology, engineering and math.
The UWRF Foundation scholarship is named the Dr. Maria Gallo STEM Scholarship Endowment.
The $1,000 scholarship is slated to be awarded for the first time in the 2022-23 academic year.
The new endowed scholarship helps kick off UWRF Foundation’s Giving Day on Friday. Giving Day supports the Falcon Annual Fund, an unrestricted fund to support the university’s most pressing and immediate needs.
Tax-deductible contributions to the UWRF Foundation may be made at the Giving Day website at go.uwrf.edu/givingday.
