Points of Interest:

  1. Governor Doyle signed the 2003-05 Biennial Budget on July 24, 2003. I have attached a spreadsheet that indicates the funding for the various programs. Our program funding for 2002-03 was $71,130,600, for the 2003-04 academic year the program funding will be $76,242,600 which is an increase of 7.19%. In academic year 2004-05 total program funding will be at $84,133,900, an increase of 18.28% from 2002-03. The maximum WHEG-UW award has been changed from $1,800 to $2,500.

  2. The Wisconsin Tuition Grant Program commit percentage has reached 117.61% as of August 5, 2003.
