Katherine Prichard Benz attended summer school at UW-Madison in 1949. Although she hoped to pursue her MSW degree that fall, she lacked the necessary financial resources. Fortunately the university awarded her a scholarship, which combined with a part-time job, enabled her to complete her MSW degree in 1951. Hoping to afford other social work students the same opportunity, she has established the Katherine Prichard Benz Fund.
