About the TEMPO Milwaukee Foundation
The TEMPO Milwaukee Foundation, the 501(c)3 charitable arm of TEMPO Milwaukee Inc., advances emerging and experienced women leaders by providing undergraduate scholarships and continuing education grants to females across the state of Wisconsin. Through the annual Mentor Awards event, more than $300,000 in scholarships has been provided to college juniors and seniors since 1990. In 2018, the Foundation began awarding Continuing Education Grants to women in Southeastern Wisconsin. Since then, six women have received a total of nearly $30,000 in funding to be used for leadership and professional development programs that will further their careers.
