Mathea Helen and Lawless Louis Mollere PreMedicine Scholarship

The Mathea Helen and Lawless Louis Mollere PreMedicine scholarship supports an aspiring physician junior or senior with financial need pursuing a degree from the College of Letters & Science. Applicants must be second or third year students at the time of application who intend to be enrolled the following academic year. Successful candidates have an excellent academic record with evidence of progress in pre-med coursework and demonstration of breadth in the liberal arts outside of the biological sciences. Only currently enrolled, U.S. citizens are considered. The donor prefers that recipients do not smoke or use alcohol or drugs.

Completed applications are evaluated using donor criteria and College of Letters & Science criteria (academic excellence, community service, leadership, diversity, strength of character, and creative accomplishment). Successful applicants should also have strong recommendations and well written essays. In addition, scholarships with a financial need component require a completed FAFSA form on file with UW-Madison. Students who are not current recipients of Letters & Science multi-year scholarships are given priority. Students must be in and maintain good standing and full-time enrollment in the College of Letters & Science.

This fund was established by the estate of Mathea Hellen Mollere to support students preparing for a career in medicine.
