“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 December 3, 2018 until 11:59 p.m. February 24, 2019.
