Excellence In Scholarship, Leadership, and Service
The Mercile J. Lee Scholars Program administers the Chancellor’s and Powers-Knapp scholarship at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The scholarships were established to attract, support and develop the abilities and potential of academically talented and outstanding individuals from underrepresented groups. Scholars benefit from individualized advising, a supportive peer network, leadership development, mentorship opportunities, and more. In addition to the structured support provided by the programs, scholars also receive a competitive financial award.
"Each and every student in the program is truly remarkable. These outstanding students have pushed me to be a better student, friend, and all around person."Dana Paz, Chancellor’s Scholarship Class of 2017
