Wisconsin Covenant to end
The Wisconsin Covenant program, which former Gov. Jim Doyle said he started to help encourage more high school students to go to college, will end. But under Gov. Walker’s budget proposal, the state will still fulfill its obligation to the students currently in the program. An article in the Green Bay Press-Gazette points out that UW-Green Bay’s privately supported Phuture Phoenix program, which was cited as a model for the Wisconsin Covenant, will “continue to offer scholarships to students who attend UW-Green Bay, with an emphasis on low-income families.” Read the article here.
