The PEOPLE Program is a year-round learning adventure that challenges and stimulates highly motivated students of color or from low-income families who are considering a college education. This program is designed to help students develop the academic skills and motivation necessary for success in college. The program begins with students in eighth grade and continues until the completion of high school. Students admitted to the PEOPLE Program are eligible for a four-year tuition scholarship. 

Approximately 1,100 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 1000 students to the UW–Madison under our scholarship program.
