Planning for spring? Consider a Summer Finish scholarship to complete your degree

Kerchia Asia Lee, of Menomonee Falls, Wis., needed 4 credits to complete her biology degree. With the help of a Summer Finish scholarship, she took Dance 100 and Counseling Psychology 230 in a four-week summer session and left UW–Madison in mid-June with her degree.

“I didn’t work my whole senior year, so I relied on my parents a lot for finances,” she says. “It was very important for me to get the scholarship, so they wouldn’t have to worry about paying my tuition.”
