Future Focus Scholarship

Do you remember what it felt like to walk across the stage and receive your diploma at commencement? When UW-Parkside students earn their degrees and walk across that stage at commencement, they are transformed by their success. You can help make that transformation possible when you invest in UW-Parkside.

Your investment drives the Future Focus Scholarship – our largest need-based scholarship fund. You may also choose to support other programs and learning
experiences that help students graduate and succeed.

Please consider a gift today.


UW-Parkside is proud to be a sponsor of the Lantern Festival at the Racine Zoo. Racine Zoo's world-famous lantern festival is on display through December 31. From tigers, lions, pandas, exotic flora, and a colossal dragon, Racine Zoo has been transformed into a world of illumination with custom-made lanterns. A must-see for alumni in the area (or back visiting for the holidays!).
