Opening doors to bright futures

We have Scholarships!

Through the generosity of our donors, we have more than $1.7 million in scholarships available in 2024 to students from more than 70 high schools. We offer scholarships to high school seniors, college and nontraditional students, and K-12 art and music camps and lessons.

Our Scholarship Portal makes it easy to apply to and manage scholarship applications and follow-up actions

February 16, 2024 Update:

As students are experiencing delays with receiving their FAFSA Submission Summaries, the Community Foundation has updated what information we collect in our financial need section of our Community Foundation Universal Scholarship Application or the UWO-Fox Cities Campus Universal Scholarship Application. These applications have been updated so that applicants are not required to submit their FAFSA Submission Summaries or to provide their SAI (Student Aid Index) number that the FAFSA Form produces for them.

In these cases, applicants will be asked to use the Federal Student Aid Estimator tool provided by the Department of Education to report their estimated SAI. Other FAFSA-related financial need questions will be self-reporting this year (Student Savings and Student Income). Because the Federal Student Aid Estimator tool asks for the same information as the FAFSA Form, it should be a straightforward process for our applicants. These changes have been made in the application already with added instructions, so applicants will be able to submit their applications successfully by the March 1 application deadline.

For scholarships that consider financial need, recipients will be required to submit their FAFSA Submission Summaries to the Community Foundation during the verification process in order to collect their awards, to verify the accuracy of responses in the application. If the recipient’s official FAFSA numbers differ significantly from the numbers they provided in the application, they will not be able to receive the award(s) for scholarships that consider financial need.

Getting Started in Two Easy Steps:

When you are ready to apply, you can click the Search For Scholarships button below to find scholarships by name, school, and type of scholarship. You can also view the eligibility criteria and see how to apply.

Note: Use an email you can access long term. Applicants should NOT use student school emails to register, as we send award information post-high school and college.
