Three CALS projects awarded Brittingham funding

Three CALS projects have been awarded funding by the UW–Madison Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs through the Brittingham Trust.

  • Kemp Natural Resources Station will receive $5,000 to support its ongoing Science on Tap: Bringing the Wisconsin Idea to the Northwoods program.
  • West Madison Agricultural Research Station will receive $12,500 to support its 2020 Undergraduate Student Internships.
  • Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), which is cosponsored by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering, will receive $6,000 for its Residential Learning Community.

The Brittingham Trust supports general university objectives, benefitting special, innovative and experimental projects that contribute to the university’s knowledge base or provide distinctive learning experiences for students or faculty. The fund is controlled by outside trustees, comprised primarily of the Brittingham family. Grants are awarded on a calendar-year basis. More information about the Brittingham Funds is available at the Office of the Provost website.
