Richard W. Belekevich Scholarship

The Richard W. Belekevich Scholarship provides a one-time award to a continuing student majoring in a foreign language or with a passion for travel and learning new languages pursuing a degree from the College of Letters & Science. There is also a preference for applicants from Sheboygan, WI.

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 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.

This fund was created by Carol S. Klein in memory of her brother, Richard W. Belekevich who graduated with a degree in Russian from UW-Madison in 1962 as a memorial tribute for future generations.
