Scholarships are a form of gift aid provided by various sources.  Students interested in scholarship funds should be prepared to do their own research.  Scholarship resources include online search engines, high schools, student or parent employers, community organizations, or religious organizations.  Below is a list of various online sources students may investigate for scholarship information.

Wisconsin high school seniors with the highest grade point average are designated by their high school to receive this award for $2250 per year. Students must maintain continuous enrollment and eligibility cannot exceed 8 semesters.
