Society Insurance, a longtime supporter of the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation, has created the Society Insurance Scholarship to be offered to a UW-Fond du Lac student for the 2013-14 academic year.
Announcing the donation at UW-Fond du Lac were members of Society Insurance’s Charities Committee, Society Insurance President and CEO Rick Parks and UW-Fond du Lac Dean and CEO John Short.

Society Insurance donated $2,200 to the UW-Fond du Lac Foundation and a $1,000 scholarship will be awarded next year.
“UW-Fond du Lac is a tremendous asset for our community,” said Parks. “Whether it is a start for a young person coming out of high school or an avenue for non-traditional students to use after they have started their working life, UW-Fond du Lac offers an affordable option for students that can also accommodate their busy lives. Many employees at Society Insurance have continued their education at UW-Fond du Lac. We are happy to partner with them to help students.”
The UW-Fond du Lac Foundation provides scholarship opportunities for students and promotes excellence at the university while enhancing the educational and cultural activities on campus.
