Stritch, Hispanic Professionals of Greater Milwaukee partner to offer scholarships

Cardinal Stritch University and Hispanic Professionals of Greater Milwaukee (HPGM) are partnering to provide scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students. The partnership supports the education, retention, and graduation of Hispanic students who are pursing post-secondary degrees.

Stritch will match funds awarded to students who are identified through HPGM’s competitive scholarship process. Full-time students currently enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs will be eligible, as will incoming students.

“Cardinal Stritch University is excited to partner with HPGM on this program that will remove barriers for students who are pursuing a college degree,” said Stritch President Dr. Dan Scholz. “Like HPGM, Stritch is committed to helping people achieve greater levels of success. Collaborating with such a respected organization helps Stritch fulfill our mission to prepare students to succeed in the communities where they live, work, serve, and lead.”

“It was a natural fit to welcome Stritch into the HPGM familia, and we are proud to serve the greater Milwaukee community alongside them!” said Francesca Mayca Wegner, HPGM Executive Director.  “Their commitment to removing financial barriers for Hispanic and Latinx students to pursue their college and career dreams is critical to the development of a diverse talent pipeline in Milwaukee. We are grateful for their support and commitment to investing in the next generation of leaders.”

The partnership is a new chapter in Stritch’s strong relationship with HPGM. The University’s HPGM Student Chapter helps students representing all academic majors identify scholarship, internship, and professional development opportunities. Chapter members also network with professionals within the greater Milwaukee area and learn what it takes to be successful during and after college.
