Crowe Scholarship Fund
Guidelines Adopted 2/04/2013, amended 4/03/2017, 4/2/2018, & 3/2/2020
The UW Board of Regents accepted a bequest to establish the Evelyn T. Crowe Scholarship Fund in July 1986, for “Scholarships in Rural Sociology.” Evelyn T. Crowe was an undergraduate major in Rural Sociology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and wished to recognize her appreciation for her excellent education by establishing this scholarship for undergraduates in Rural Sociology and graduate students in the combined Rural Sociology/Sociology program. In June 2003, the University of Wisconsin Foundation received an additional bequest from the estate of Evelyn T. Crowe for the same purpose—providing scholarship support to Rural Sociology students.

Departmental Guidelines for Allocating Crowe Funds
I. Undergraduate Awards. Undergraduate support is a high priority. However, collectively, undergraduates shall not receive more than one-half of all the scholarship funds available in a given year. Scholarly merit and student progress are the deciding factors for granting awards, with the exception of E below.
