Excellence In Scholarship, Leadership, and Service

The Chancellor’s and Powers-Knapp Scholarship Programs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison were established to attract, support and develop the abilities and potential of academically talented and outstanding individuals from underrepresented  groups. Scholars benefit from individualized advising, a supportive peer network, leadership development, mentorship opportunities, and more.  In addition to the structured support provided by the programs, Scholars also receive a competitive financial award.

"Each and every student in the program is truly remarkable. These outstanding students have pushed me to be a better student, friend, and all around person."
