Roger and Caroline Mahan Laubenheimer Scholarship

The Roger and Caroline Mahan Laubenheimer scholarship provides a one-time award (amount subject to variation) to a high achieving non-WI resident incoming freshman pursuing a degree from the College of Letters & Science.

The majority of scholarship opportunities for incoming freshman in the College of Letters & Science will be assessed per the admission application and financial aid data from the FAFSA. There is not a separate scholarship application to complete for most scholarships. Most awards prioritize excellent students with financial need. You are encouraged to complete the FAFSA to determine eligibility for institutional and federal financial aid by the December 1 priority date. Admission application essays may be reviewed as a part of the scholarship selection process. Scholarship opportunities are very limited for non-Wisconsin residents and international students are not eligible for incoming freshman scholarships. The UW-Madison admissions decision process is independent of the College of Letters & Science scholarship awarding process.

As an out-of-state student, Caroline Laubenheimer was awarded an out-of-state scholarship which was a significant factor in her ability to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In return, she wishes to provide support to out-of-state students pursuing a liberal arts education.

Students awarded an incoming freshman scholarship will receive an award offer email to their email account.

Student financial aid packages may be impacted by scholarship awards. It is recommended that students contact the financial aid office to learn about impact on current aid packages.
