The Outreach Scholars Program is comprised of graduate and undergraduate students with extensive experience living, working, or studying in Africa. Outreach Scholars try to dispel myths and break down the simple stories that are so often recited about Africa. Outreach Scholars enrich school curricula and community events by sharing their area studies expertise, life stories, and artistic skills in classrooms and community groups throughout Wisconsin.
