The Alliant Energy Erroll B. Davis, Jr. Academic Achievement Awards honor the outstanding scholarship and community service of undergraduate students from traditionally under-represented minority groups pursuing a degree in Business or Engineering at UW-Madison and UW-Platteville. Award recipients are nominated during the fall of the final year, and receive the award upon graduation.

These awards, funded by an endowment from the Alliant Energy Foundation, Inc. are intended to recognize and reward outstanding students at UW System universities within Alliant Energy’s service area. Alliant Energy established the award to recognize and honor Erroll B. Davis, Jr., former CEO of Alliant Energy and former Board of Regents member for the University of Wisconsin System.
