Magnet launches scholarship program

Madison Magnet’s goal is to help support and elevate Madison’s young professionals through its social community, professional growth, and personal wellness. As a part of this goal, Magnet debuted an award and scholarship program, which began with its Wisconsin Young Professional Award program and expanded in 2019 through its partnership with Leadership Greater Madison.

Now, Magnet will provide one individual with a full $2,500 scholarship to the Leadership Greater Madison program, and a second individual with a discounted tuition of $1,500.

The application period for the Magnet scholarship closes on Dec. 15, 2019. Visit for more information.
