USM offers four major scholarships for students applying to Upper School: the Joe Lubar Scholarship, STAR Scholarship, Milwaukee College Prep Scholarship, and the John Stephens Scholarship. All scholarships are for four years and cover the cost of full tuition.
Joe Lubar Scholarship
In 2012 the Lubar Family established the Joseph Lubar Scholarship to honor the memory of their son, Joe Lubar ’09. This is a four-year, full tuition scholarship for a student new to USM entering the ninth grade. The scholarship recognizes an outstanding student from the greater Milwaukee area who has demonstrated academic potential, leadership, and excellence in extracurricular involvements and community service.
John Stephens Scholarship
This scholarship recognizes the distinguished career of long time teacher, John Stephens (often referred to as “JS”). During his 46 year tenure with USM (and Milwaukee Country Day School) Mr. Stephens served as Upper School Head, Director of Admissions, and Department Chair of the History Department. This scholarship was established by a USM alum to recognize Mr. Stephens devotion to teaching. This scholarship can be awarded to a rising 9th grader from USM’s Middle School or a new student to the 9th grade.
This scholarship was established in 2014 by a USM family with several alumni children and a number of grandchildren who are current students. The STAR Scholarship recognizes the achievements of a student in the areas of academics, leadership, service, and extra-curricular activities while honoring two USM faculty members. Scholarship recipients must be new to USM entering the 9th grade, reside in the greater Milwaukee area, and be the member of a traditionally underrepresented minority group.
Milwaukee College Prep Scholarships
These two scholarships, established first in 2014 and again in 2015 by several USM families with strong ties to Milwaukee College Prep (MCP) school, are offered to two outstanding students entering the 9th grade. The scholarship recipient must be an alumni of MCP with a strong academic record and character. This scholarship covers tuition and other expenses that comprise the cost of attendance.
