The Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin is accepting scholarship applications from area students who will be furthering their post-secondary education next fall. The Community Foundation currently has over 178 scholarship funds to support educational endeavors. Each scholarship follows a set of criteria established by the fund representative. Scholarships are available for students who excel academically, artistically, athletically and simply who have a desire to further their education. As each fund is different, the Foundation encourages applications from all interested students. Funds are available to support graduates from all area high schools as well as college students furthering their education.
The Community Foundation annually distributes approximately $170,000 through its family of scholarship funds. Scholarship awards are announced each June. An application is required. The deadline for all 2016 scholarship applications is March 1, 2016.
Scholarship applications can be downloaded from the Foundation’s website at www.cfcwi.org. Parents and students are encouraged to contact the Foundation or your school’s guidance counselors for more information on the various scholarships available to graduating seniors.
