These scholarships are named in honor of Dr. Robert R. Spitzer, a member of DTS who became a prominent leader in agribusiness, higher education, and public service. The purpose of these scholarships is to financially support male students enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). The students must be incoming Freshman, Sophomores or Juniors. The students must also be current or prospective members of Delta Theta Sigma Fraternity Inc (DTS) who intend to fully participate in the activities of DTS.
There will be three scholarships awarded annually each for approximately $2,000. (The size of the award is dependent on the interest earned on the fund.) Preference will be given to Wisconsin residents from rural areas and current members of DTS who intend to live in the fraternity house.
Applications for these scholarships will be accepted between January 1, 2022 and March 15, 2022. The recipients will be notified mid-April and the award will be administered through the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub (WiSH) by CALS to the recipients’ 2022-2023 tuition and fees. These scholarships are renewable for three years (seniors not eligible), but reapplication is required each year. In addition to a completed application form, a copy of their recent Student Aid Report (SAR) is required prior to awarding decisions. The SAR is received following filing a FAFSA. The DTS scholarship committee will select the recipient.
