The UW Credit Union is providing scholarship money for students. UW Credit Union president and CEO, Paul Kundert, says the credit union is giving some $600,000, including $215,000 for UW Madison , to provide need-based scholarships for low and moderate income students.
The other schools to benefit are the Milwaukee, Green Bay, Stevens Point and Whitewater UW campuses, and Madison Area Technical College. Kundert says the credit union is in a good financial position to provide the gift. UW Credit Union members are being asked to make contributions which will be matched dollar for dollar, and Kundert says the hope is to raise one million dollars overall.
