Marjorie Christiansen Abrahamsen Memorial Scholarship
The Marjorie Christiansen Abrahamsen Memorial scholarship provides a 4 year renewable award to high achieving 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 are assessed per the admission application. There is not a separate scholarship application to complete for most scholarships. 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.
Mr. Martin Abraham Abrahamsen established this scholarship to provide financial assistance to meritorious undergraduate students in the College of Letters & Science. His wife, Marjorie Abrahamsen, graduated with a degree in Human Ecology from UW-Madison in 1933.
Students awarded an incoming freshman scholarship will receive an award offer email to their wisc.edu 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.
