“To allow deserving students to attain their educational goals, meet their professional objectives and succeed to their fullest potential.” – Forest County Potawatomi Foundation Scholarship Mission

Since 1999, the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation has been supporting our communities by assisting and enabling their efforts towards self-improvement.  However, we know that there is more we can do for our communities.  We know that our communities have a real need to create a more educated and skilled workforce, and there is a need to make that education and training more affordable.

To help address this overwhelming need found in communities throughout Wisconsin, the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation has created a scholarship program for Wisconsin residents. Three different scholarship opportunities are available for Wisconsin residents seeking to enroll in one of Wisconsin’s accredited universities or technical schools/colleges. We look forward to this new chapter for the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation and continuing the work we do with our communities.

The Foundation will begin accepting applications for the 2019-2020 academic year beginning Monday November 5, 2018.
