A record 308 scholarships for the upcoming academic year have been awarded by the Nicolet College Foundation. The number is nearly double the number awarded 10 years ago.
Foundation Executive Director Heather Schallock says exceptional students qualify...
"....our scholarships range from $500 up to $2,500 and they're for students in any and all of our programs...."
Some students could receive up to $6,000 if they are recognized as community scholars. Students awarded as Community Scholars include Bobbi Schauer from Elcho, Natalie Miller from Three Lakes, Trevor Martin from Crandon, Samanatha Busha from Northland Pines in Eagle River, Emily Bushor from Lakeland Union High School, William Keiffer from Rhinelander and Jacob Pakulski from Wabeno.To qualify, students must have a 3.7 grade point average or better and have demonstrated exemplary behavior while in high school.
Schallock says the money to fund the scholarships is all privately funded...
"....no tax money is used for scholarships. Our scholarships are awarded solely through the generous donors who contribute through their own contributions..."
