Zupko Endowed Scholarship

Through the generosity of Dr. Ronald E. Zupko, professor emeritus of history, and Mrs. Kathleen M. Zupko, former MPS elementary school teacher, Marquette is pleased to offer the Ronald E. and Kathleen M. Zupko Scholarship, a four-year scholarship covering full tuition. This scholarship recognizes high-achieving graduates of the Milwaukee Public School system. It is awarded once every four years to talented Milwaukee Public School seniors with demonstrated financial need.

The scholarship is renewable each year of the recipient’s four-year (eight-semester) undergraduate program, provided the recipient maintains a 2.0 GPA in freshman year and a minimum 2.5 GPA thereafter. The award is based on academic merit and demonstrated financial need.
