Jason Mathwig awarded $13,822 from Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

Congratulations to Continuing Education and Community Engagement’s Jason Mathwig, Director of Camps and Conferences, on being awarded $13,822 from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for the project titled “Youth Opportunities” last September. This grant provides scholarship funds for local middle and high schoolers to attend an extensive series of summer camps as commuters or residents at UW-Green Bay including: Art camp, Aviation Student training Experience, Camp Lloyd (for grieving children), Diversity Leadership Institute, Grandparents’ University, Life’s A Lab Medical Camp, Music Camps, Robotics and STEM, Rock Academy and Video Game Programming. Students qualifying for a scholarship must be a Wisconsin resident, qualify for free or reduced lunch at school and have a GPA of 2.5 or higher in core academic subjects (english, math, science, social studies, reading and foreign languages). Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. These scholarships allow many children who would not otherwise have the means to attend the summer camp program. Learn more.
