Tommy Thompson Scholarship for Leadership

The Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership offers one scholarship award of $2,300 to one student per academic year. Scholarships are intended for undergraduates (any school or college) who have shown public leadership in their lives in a way that reflects the general legacy of Governor Tommy G. Thompson.

Last year’s UW-Madison winner stated, “The spirit of enthusiasm, following your “why,” and building strong relationships is fundamental not only to Governor Thompson’s legacy of leadership, but to all aspects of constructive communication, policy, and understanding.”
