The Berger Book Bag Fund provides financial assistance to UW-Fond du Lac students who might otherwise have difficulty in purchasing required books and academic supplies.
The funding for this program is made possible through the generous gift made by Judith Berger O’Brien to honor the memory of Joseph S. Berger, Jr., who with his father Joseph S Berger, Sr. was instrumental in the establishment of the UW-Fond du Lac campus.
The fund is administered by the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation and Alumni Association.
Berger Book Bag Grant applications are being accepted through August 1. Available to incoming and continuing UW-Fond du Lac students, selected recipients can receive up to $300 to purchase textbooks and class supplies for the Fall 2017 Semester. The sole criterion of eligibility for the grant money is financial need.
