This fund was established by UW-Whitewater alumnus Michael J. Cesario’71 to assist meritorious UW-Whitewater students who possess a declared major in the College of Arts and Communication, have demonstrated discernable promise in their craft or area of study, and have financial need. Cesario graduated from UW-Whitewater in 1971 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in theater. He was a member of the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity and was the first student at UW-Whitewater to design his own major. The student should be a junior or senior and must provide evidence of financial need (preference given to those who are first generation college students).
In 2007, Mary Dahle Armstrong and Warren Armstrong presented a generous gift to the Dahle Family Memorial Scholarship. Mary and Warren’s desire was to make a significant impact on students while increasing the size of the endowed fund. Originally established by Jon Dahle, this memorial scholarship was created to honor the family’s relationship to the university. His mother, Ann Dahle worked with UW-Whitewater for 29 years, and both Jon and his sister were alumni of the university. The Dahle Family Memorial Scholarship provides opportunities to students of at least a junior status who have a declared major in Art, Music or Theatre/Dance and have demonstrated significant artistic talent. 3 awards at $7,600 each.
Annette ’71 and Dale Schuh established the The Schuh Scholarship to further their intent to encourage participation, appreciation, and excellence in the humanities. With this scholarship, they make a commitment to serve first-generation college students with potential, providing financial incentives and challenging talented students in the College of Arts and Communication to reach greater heights. This scholarship shall be made to promising students enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and have a major in the College of Arts and Communication.
Through the generosity of Mrs. Raymond Light, the Light family, and friends of former Dean Ray Light, a $1000 scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding student in each of the Departments of Art, Music, and Theatre/Dance. The award money comes as a $500 tuition remission for the fall and spring term next year unless the recipient has only one semester remaining, in which case the whole $1000 will apply to the fall tuition.
This award is presented to the most outstanding junior in the College of Arts and Communication as determined by the Arts and Communication Scholarship Selection Committee. Typically, a $1000.00 award.
This scholarship endowment is established in 2007 by James R and Zoe E Connor. Dr. and Mrs. Connor were instrumental in the growth and development of UW-Whitewater as a strong regional university. Through Dr. Connor’s work as Chancellor, and Mrs. Connor’s support and involvement of that work, the university many advances were made on campus, including the Young Auditorium and many strong student-centered programs. The donor’s objectives are to support and encourage highly qualified students in the College of Arts and Communication at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. This new scholarship will rotate between the college's four academic departments.
