“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 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.
For the 2020 – 2021 Academic Years, the Foundation is now accepting
