Wirth Scholars Award

The Wirth Scholars Award provides a one-time award to high achieving first generation students with any intended L&S major or self-identified female students in the physical sciences who are pursuing a research oriented career.

Dr. Dyann and Mr. Peter Wirth,* the donors of this scholarship, both received undergraduate degrees from UW-Madison.

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) and require well written essays. Students who are not current recipients of Letters & Science multi-year scholarships are given priority.
