The Degree Project

THE PROMISE OF COLLEGE

The Degree Project® is a groundbreaking program created to give nearly 2,600 participating Milwaukee Public Schools students the boost they need to attend college and reach their full potential.

The program, a partnership between Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation and Affiliates and Milwaukee Public chools, sets academic goals for high school students in The Degree Project. Those who work hard and achieve these goals can receive a scholarship of up to $12,000 to help pay for an education at a two- or four-year college in Wisconsin.

Great Lakes has committed $10 million to this program. Its hope is to provide a brighter future for individuals, families, and Milwaukee, while demonstrating that promise scholarships are a good investment worth extending to all students.

2.5 Cumulative GPA plus 90% Cumulative Attendance = $12,000 Scholarship
