Madison High School Sánchez Scholars
Madison High School Scholarship
Every year MMSD middle school staff nominate promising eighth graders as candidates for the high school Sánchez Scholars program. Eligible students are fully bilingual Spanish speakers with financial need who have a desire to pursue higher education. Preference is given to those who will be the first in their families to attend college.
Sánchez Scholar program coordinators work closely with middle school staff throughout the nomination and selection process. Students and families are not able to apply directly for the high school scholarship
Professor Roberto G. Sánchez Hispanic Bilingual Scholarship
In 2008 Professor Sánchez initiated a scholarship through the Madison College Foundation that supports students pursuing liberal arts transfer or associate degree programs there. Eligible candidates are fully bilingual graduates of Dane County high schools who demonstrate financial need. The majority are first-generation college students. Priority is given to prior high school Sánchez Scholars.
UW-Madison Roberto G. Sánchez Scholarship
The University of Wisconsin-Madison, where Professor Sánchez completed his Ph.D. and served on the faculty, awarded its first Sánchez scholarships in 2011. The Roberto G.Sánchez Scholarship Fund gives preference to bilingual, first-generation Hispanic students, and prioritizes previous Sánchez Scholars. It is also strongly preferred that assistance be given to transfer students who have already successfully completed two years of post-secondary education.
