A Commitment to Honors Students

October 25, 2016

“I would not have made it through my undergraduate years at UWM without the help of scholarships,” says AJ KleinOsowski ’99, an alumna of the College of Engineering & Applied Science and the Honors College. Now a research scientist and design engineer with The Boeing Company, AJ and her husband, Kevin KleinOsowski ’97, have established a scholarship for honors College students at UWM.

“As soon as I paid off my student loans, I took the equivalent monthly payments and routed those funds into scholarships for future students,” she explains. “As my career progressed and my income increased, I elevated those funds to a named undergraduate scholarship, and each year, I leveraged matching funds from my employer to increase the impact of my giving. I am very proud to support the KleinOsowski Honors College Scholarship at UWM. I cherish the opportunity to help these exemplary students in launching their academic and professional careers.”
