Scholarships

Public and Environmental Affairs now offers two scholarships for students.

Outstanding Student Scholarship and Award

Guidelines for Public and Environmental Affairs

The application deadline for the scholarship is November 15th of every year. Application materials (listed below) should be sent by email to:

Prof. Katia Levintova, PEA Adviser
Outstanding Student in Public and Environmental Affairs Scholarship and Award

To be eligible for the award and scholarship, individuals must be full-time undergraduate students at UW-Green Bay, and must have at least junior standing, with a UWGB grade-point average of 3.25 or better at the time of application, and a similar grade point average in the major/minor. Only students who are public administration or environmental policy and planning majors or minors with one or more remaining semesters at UW-Green Bay are eligible for this award.

To be considered for the scholarship and award, students must also obtain a letter of nomination from a faculty member. Faculty members, lecturers, and ad hoc instructors may all provide letters of support.

The scholarship winner will be chosen based on a combination of the following:

  • An application essay by the student, no more than two pages typed, double-spaced, demonstrating a significant interest in public or nonprofit service, or in environmental protection and stewardship.
  • A resume from the student that shows academic excellence, leadership potential and a commitment to serving others.
  • A nominating letter from an instructor. This letter should be brief, and sent by email separately from the student essay.

The scholarship committee also reserves the right to examine the UWGB transcripts of applicants for the scholarship.

The applications will be judged by a committee of at least three members of the PEA faculty. The Outstanding Student Award plaque will be given to one student each spring during the PEA Student Engagement Forum held in May of every year. The recipient will also receive a $500 tuition reduction for the spring semester. In case of a tie, both recipients will receive a plaque and share in the award.

PEA faculty members welcome the possibility of naming this scholarship in the future.
