About Us

The Wisconsin Alumni Association: West Suburban Chicago's purpose is to build an inclusive local community of UW alumni and supporters united by Badger pride, spirit, and the desire to advance UW–Madison's positive impact on the world.

The WAA: West Suburban Chicago Chapter has given many scholarships over the years, supporting local students who plan to attend UW–Madison. The chapter took a “break” for a few years and is now back and active once again, ready to restart this scholarship program for a new generation. Four of our five current board members were recipients of our chapter’s scholarships when they were students and we believe strongly in paying it forward.
