DPI Scholarships


  • For Wisconsin Residents ONLY
  • ​Must be enrolling in one of the following camps:
    • Rock Academy

These DPI scholarships are financial need-based. If the camper qualifies for free or reduced lunch AND has a 2.50* or higher grade point average, he/she may be eligible to receive a scholarship. All scholarships must meet this criteria. Scholarships are first come, first serve until funds are depleted.

*GPA is calculated based on core academic subjects: English, math, science, social studies, reading, and foreign language.

Campers are only eligible to receive a DPI scholarship three times.

To apply
  1. Download and print and fill out the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Scholarship Form.
  2. Include a copy of your child's last Report Card
  3. Complete a Camp Registration form (found on the specific camp web page).

Applications will NOT be accepted without ALL THREE of these forms.

Once completed, please send the DPI Scholarship Scholarship Form, along with a Camp Registration, and a copy of your child's last Report Card to:

Camps and Conferences
UW-Green Bay, CL 109
2420 Nicolet Drive
Green Bay, WI  54311-7001

DO NOT send the Scholarship Form to the Madison DPI office. It will take your application several weeks longer to reach our office. Scholarships are given on a first come, first serve basis so this would not be in your favor.

Application MUST be signed by a school counselor or school designee in the administration or district office to prove eligibility for free or reduced lunches. A teacher's signature is not valid.

Arda Ishkhanian (1957-2013) was an artist and popular longtime Summer Art Studio Camp instructor at UW-Green Bay. Of Armenian descent, she was born in Egypt and attended high school in Beirut, Lebanon before immigrating to America in the late 1970s. She graduated from California College of Arts with a BFA in Film and Video, and then continued her studies in Interactive Multimedia at San Francisco State University and received her BA in Art Education from the University of Iowa. As a teacher, she shared her passion for the Arts with her students and loved to share her world experiences and introduce students to the art of other cultures. This scholarship was established in her memory to help students attend the Summer Art Camps.
