Scholarships Available to Area Students

Tue. Jan 23, 2018

(Wisconsin Rapids, WI, January 8, 2018)  Applications are now being accepted for more than 100 scholarships offered through Incourage. 

Scholarships provide support to high school students seeking assistance for college tuition. There are also scholarships for non-traditional students pursuing a college education, and scholarships for college students in their second year and higher. 

Each scholarship is unique. Some are established in a specific field of interest, and others are created to honor loved ones.

The common element in all scholarships is the charitable spirit of the donors who created them.

“We’re grateful for the individuals and groups who make these awards possible and believe that  education gives people the opportunity to realize their full potential,” said Dawn Vruwink, who oversees Incourage’s scholarship application process.

For more information about a scholarship fund or general questions, please contact Vruwink at [email protected] or call 715.818.6176. The deadline for scholarships is February 15. For more information, or to apply, visit www.incouragecf.org/for-students.
