Dickinson plans to advocate for poverty policies

Student Michele Dickinson's desire to lead a nonprofit organization and advocate for state policies to address poverty arises from her experience as a single, teen mother in concert with her undergraduate majors and volunteer activities.

Even though Noah Rosenberg has been a health-care attorney in California for 30 years, he keeps a warm place in his heart for Madison. Realization of how the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s at the University of Wisconsin helped to shape the attorney he became, plus the desire to remember his sister and niece have prompted Noah and his wife, Shelley, to establish the Ina Jo Rosenberg and Shiri Eve Leah Gumbiner Fellowship for a health policy student at the La Follette School.
Six students benefited from the generosity of alumni and friends of the La Follette School during the 2010-2011 school year. The students' interests include shaping institutions, crafting anti-poverty policy, solving problems, and using neuroscience to inform public policy.
Professor emeritus Dennis Dresang and donors to the scholarship fund named for him will be recognized at the La Follette School's annual Madison reception on Thursday, February 6, at Inn on the Park, 22 South Carroll Street, on the Capitol Square.

For student Andrew Walsh, receiving the Ina Jo Rosenberg and Shiri Eve Leah Gumbiner Fellowship makes possible the whole endeavor of earning dual master's degrees in public affairs and public health.

First award made from Doris J. Hanson Fund

C.P. Frost is the first student to receive scholarship funds from the Doris J. Hanson Fund. Community leaders established the fund after the longtime public servant passed away in 2006.
Our alumni and friends are one of the La Follette School's greatest assets. The prestige and reputation of the school grows with your accomplishments.
Financial support for La Follette School students from Wisconsin is growing thanks to donations to two special funds.
Dennis Dresang made transformational contributions to the La Follette School, through his leadership, and to public administration, through his scholarship. Fund-raising goes well for the scholarship established four years ago to honor him.
