Scholarships

The Whitewater Community Foundation is proud to work with various community members and groups to provide scholarships for students who attend Whitewater High School and would like to further their educations. Please contact us by phone or through our contact page if you would like to discuss setting up a scholarship fund for your community.

The Whitewater Community Foundation is proud to offer a $500 scholarship in honor of its founding members. Russell Devitt, John Newhouse, Charles Scharine, Betty Frawley, Don Hale, Randy Cruse, Robert Kelchner and Dr. Lee Allenstein were instrumental in forming the Foundation.

The Founders’ Scholarship will be awarded to a student who has shown a passion for learning and shows academic promise. The candidate will have exhibited a strong sense of community involvement and service. Outside work experience and volunteerism will be given consideration. Enrollment will be at any Wisconsin 2- or 4-year school.

A short handwritten essay that supports strong character, work ethic and volunteerism is required with the application.

Financial need is an important factor in determining the candidate.

The WHS Common Application form must be used. The WHS Scholarship Committee will select the top 5 applicants and submit them to the Whitewater Community Foundation Scholarship Committee for final selection.

Payment will be made upon certification of registration for second semester in the same school.
