Middleman Scholarship: For a Marquette Law Student—$10,000

The Middleman Scholarship is awarded annually to one Marquette law student. Don’t miss this scholarship opportunity!

WHAT IT IS: A one-time scholarship to be awarded to a Marquette law student; someone who has sincere interests outside of the classroom—someone who is original, good-hearted, and has a good sense of humor.

AMOUNT: The scholarship will be between $5,000 to $10,000.


WHO IS ELIGIBLE: Law students who will have completed a minimum of 27 credits at the completion of the fall 2022 semester. The Middleman Scholarship was established by a group of alumni to help hard-working students, who have a wide array of interests outside of law school.  
A simple essay that includes the following:

  1. Name
  2. Address
  3. Phone number
  4. Outside interests (Please, no reference to law. We know you're accomplished in that respect.)
  5. Why you should be awarded the scholarship

Students who have balanced academics with other life experiences and interests are encouraged to apply. The Law School Class of 1988 established this scholarship to help students like themselves: hard working, with financial need and who have a wide array of interests outside of law school.  


Please submit your application by emailing your essay to Dean Wilczynski-Vogel. 

The scholarship award will be applied to the recipient’s tuition for the 2023-24 academic year.

December and January Campus Ministry retreats are now open for registration! All of these opportunities have historically had a high proportion of grad student retreatants, and all take place during winter break. Please click the links below to learn more.

Silent Weekend: December 16-18 

The silent weekend begins directly after finals and is organized around a set of talks on Ignatian Spirituality, given this year by Fr. Philip Sutherland, SJ. The theme this year is Discernment, a style of prayerful decision-making pioneered by St. Ignatius. Students of all faiths are welcome. Cost: $20, with readily available financial assistance.


Ignatian Journey Retreat: January 3-6 

This is a flexible, individualized retreat which can be done either from home or on-campus. It centers around daily spiritual conversation with a spiritual director who is matched with you, and also includes online opening/closing prayer services and daily online talks. Directors are trained and prepared to work with people from a variety of spiritual backgrounds and no background at all. No cost!


Silent Directed Retreat: January 9-14 

This is a classic Ignatian 5-day retreat, held at gorgeous Jesuit Retreat House in Oshkosh. It includes daily spiritual direction and a variety of optional offerings, from yoga to Mass to short Ignatian-focused talks. The silence is welcoming and companionable, and it is enormously helpful in uncovering new insights through prayer, reflection, and simply slowing down. Cost: $50, with readily available financial assistance.
