Whether it’s an upgrade to our training spaces, gameday improvements, training tables, or academic needs, these gifts large and small add up to make our experience second to none, not only amongst our peers, but increasingly throughout the nation.” Commitment to Athletics

Student Emergency Fund



A total of $10,879 was awarded to 18 students as part of the Student

Emergency Fund this year. "The student emergency fund helped me during a time


when I wasn't sure if I would be financially stable enough to continue my education. It gave me hope in a time when I didn’t have another resource or place to turn. Because of the help that I received, I can continue my education here at UW-Stout."

Hoeft Builders "It feels great to be at a point in life where we can start giving back," said Luke Rykal (’05), co-owner of Hoeft Builders. Fellow co-owner Jay Rideout (’04) agreed. “This takes me back to when I was going to Stout, and I’d see different rooms named for donors. Now that we’re part of that, it’s pretty special.”

Foundation Scholarships

673 students like Abbie received over $1.2 million dollars in scholarship support from the Stout University Foundation in 2022-2023 because of donors like you. “I plan to work in a juvenile detention facility here in Wisconsin to make sure inmates are getting the proper mental health treatment while they are incarcerated... This scholarship allows me to afford to take some time off work to dedicate to on-campus events and my studies, which are extremely important to me, since I hope to graduate with a 3.5 GPA or higher.”

Abbie Aasen, a junior majoring in Psychology, was a featured speaker at the 2023 Stout Foundation Scholarship reception.
