Scholarship Fund

We hope to make it possible for more UWRF students to participate in the transformational experience of Semester Abroad: Europe (formerly ‘Quarter Abroad’). In 1993, Dr. Bailey generously endowed the “River Falls Semester Abroad” scholarship fund with a gift from his estate, and over the years, other donors and alumni have added to the endowment. Last year this fund generated a payout of about $1,500, which was split and awarded to three students enrolled in the program.

Help give more students like Kay and Jessica the opportunity to grow and learn through Semester Abroad: Europe, just as you did. Please consider making a gift to the Semester Abroad Scholarship today! Even if you are unable to attend the reunion, consider donating the amount you would have spent on your registration fee to the scholarship!


For information on ways to give, contact the UWRF Foundation at 715-425-3505, or make your gift online now at

When asked to direct your gift on the form, mark "Other" and indicate "River Falls Semester Abroad Scholarship".

"I am beyond grateful for this opportunity to learn about Europe's history and culture, and learn so many life skills along the way.  I plan on using the information gained from the individuals I am meeting with here …(who are) involved in youth leadership organizations based on agriculture … in my career as a 4-H agent."
