Invest in the Future of Wisconsin
PEOPLE is serving only a small fraction of the number of Wisconsin’s qualified and motivated students of color and low income. Between 1999 and 2005, the program attracted over 1,000 new students; participation jumped 1498% from 66 students to 1,088! The University of Wisconsin-Madison invests approximately $4 million annually to fund the program, but outside funding is necessary for sustainability and growth. There is a great need for scholarships at both the precollege and college levels.
PROGRAM FOCUS: The program focuses on building the following four competencies necessary to seek and complete a college degree: (1) Build and Master Academic Knowledge; (2) Build Cognitive Skills and Strategies; (3) Build Self-Management Skills; and (4) Build Knowledge about College through Experiential Learning. This is achieved through summer residential programs, tutoring sites, and personalized intrusive advising.
