Plans are to recognize these continuing scholarship recipients at Convocation ceremonies to be held Friday, September 7, early in the fall 2012 semester. Transferring students honored with scholarships will be presented with their awards at Graduation and Awards Night on May 4. Incoming freshmen scholarship recipients are recognized during honors ceremonies held at their high schools and will be announced once those awards have all been presented. The Richland County Campus Foundation administers the UW-Richland Scholarship Program. About $100,000 is awarded each year to new freshmen, continuing, and transferring students.
