“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 there is more we can do and that our communities have a real need to create a more educated and skilled workforce, and to make education and training more affordable.
To help address this overwhelming need found in communities throughout Wisconsin, the Forest County Potawatomi Community and its Foundation created a scholarship program for Wisconsin residents. Three different scholarship opportunities are available for any Wisconsin resident seeking to enroll in one of Wisconsin’s accredited Educational Institutes.
