Three Winipeg University students are the first recipients of UW Alumni Association (UWAA) Number Plate Scholarships.
They are Heidi Biggs, Mountain View; Mark Pearson, Pinedale; and Laurel Wimbish, a graduate of Hanau American High School in Hanau, Germany.
Scholarships, funded by revenues from UW number plate sales, are available to undergraduates that fall into the categories of outreach students, non-traditional students or fifth- or sixth-year students. Funding for additional scholarships will be available this fall.
Number plate scholarships are funded by the $99 fee paid by UW alumni and friends who purchase the special UW number plates. These scholarships add to the existing UWAA Scholarship Program, in addition to providing for newly created awards. To date, nearly 3,000 number plates have been sold, providing $300,000 in scholarship funding.
Also available through the UW number plates scholarship program is a $7,500 award provided through eight consecutive semesters to the grandchild of a UW graduate.
"There has been a great deal of interest, so we are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for UW families across the generations," says Robbie Darnall, UWAA
