The PEOPLE Program is a year-round learning adventure that challenges and stimulates highly motivated students who are considering a college education. This program is designed to help each student develop the academic skills and motivation necessary for success in college. This six-year program begins in the summer when students have completed the sixth grade and continues until the students have graduated from high school. Upon graduation, each PEOPLE student admitted to UW-Madison will be eligible for a need- or merit-based tuition grant for up to five years. 

Approximately 1,300 students currently participate in the PEOPLE Program ranging from second grade through undergraduate college level. They began in 1999 with 66 eager ninth-graders from Milwaukee public high schools who are now completing college degrees and entering the workforce. The PEOPLE Program has admitted 359 students to the UW–Madison under our scholarship program
