UW Sheboygan Foundation Grants
The UW Sheboygan Foundation has provided four grants to the library since 1997, exceeding $30,000 to date! We gratefully acknowledge these gifts from the UW Sheboygan Foundation and appreciate all that the board members do in support of the campus.
In March 2007, the Foundation approved $5,000 in funding to initiate the University Library/UW-Sheboygan Foundation Internship in Information Resources. This internship offers a great, hands-on educational experience to one student each year who is interested in learning some important, in-depth skills in information resources and technology. It also provides a scholarship award to help fund the student's tuition and related expenses. The program was funded on a trial basis for 2007/08, but has since been established as a permanent annual scholarship from the Foundation.
In November 2005, the UW Sheboygan Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant to the library to purchase 165 new books in the subject areas of geography, anthropology, political science, art and music, to replace material damaged beyond use from a Summer 2003 mold outbreak (in the previous library).
In Spring 2001, UW Sheboygan and UW Oshkosh began offering a program of study on the UW Sheboygan campus leading to the UW Oshkosh degree Master of Science in Education-Curriculum and Instruction. The UW Sheboygan Foundation provided strong financial support for the start-up of this program, including a grant of over $7,200 to Battig Memorial Library in 2001-02 to purchase 148 titles for the collection to support the research needs of the MSE students.
In Fall 1997, the UW Sheboygan Foundation awarded a grant of $3,500 to Battig Memorial Library, in order to supplement the regular acquisitions budget and allow the purchase of 126 additional titles for the collection across a broad array of subjects.
