  1. An opportunity grant in the amount of $500.00 for a graduating student with a disability.
  2. A recognition to a staff member who demonstrates special understanding and support for students with disabilities.

Each year the ADA/504 committee solicits the help of Madison College faculty and staff in nominating a student with a disability who either graduated in December or is graduating in Spring who you think has:

  • Overcome substantial barriers during his/her academic career
  • Achieved academic success
  • Worked at being a successful self-advocate
  • Contributed to an understanding of the issues surrounding disabilities either on a one-on-one basis or with a larger audience

When nominating someone, we would like you to consider the factors listed above as well as giving us one or two examples of why you think the student you are nominating best exemplifies the characteristics outlined. Nominations can be submitted by filling out the online form. If you have questions please contact Sandy Hall at (608) 246-6791 or sghall@madisoncollege.edu.

The ADA/504 Committee thanks you!
