High school scholars in UW-Madison’s PEOPLE program (Pre-College Enrichment Opportunity Program for Learning Excellence) and incoming PEOPLE college freshmen from across Wisconsin were feted for their accomplishments at the program’s annual recognition banquet Friday, Aug. 2.

The class of 136 PEOPLE scholars and 90 incoming first-year students are part of the long-term diversity program designed to increase the number of college-ready students applying to the state’s flagship campus.

In partnership with PEOPLE, and funded by a grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the UW Department of Surgery Clinical Research Internship for High School Students offers rising senior PEOPLE students the opportunity to experience the rewards of an academic medical career.

This year, UW Surgery celebrated the success of its second class! Read more about the students, program and our partnership here.
