Time to apply for Waushara County HCE scholarships

Waushara County students are encouraged to apply for the Waushara County Home and Community Education (HCE) Association scholarships.

 

There will be two scholarships worth $500 each awarded to deserving Waushara County students. Applicants must be residents of Waushara County and be enrolled or accepted at a college, university, or technical school. Application forms are available from high school guidance offices in Wautoma, Wild Rose, Westfield, Berlin, Tri-County, and Weyauwega-Fremont. Forms may also be obtained at the UW-Extension office, Wautoma. Completed applications and two recommendations must be received at the UWEX Office, P.O. Box 487, Wautoma, WI 54982 by April 1, 2020.

First preference will be given to students majoring in the fields of family and consumer sciences, agriculture, medicine or education. If no applicants are found in these fields, the scholarships will be awarded to students in other fields of study. Current college juniors will be considered first, followed by current college sophomores, freshmen, and then high school seniors.

Applicants should be students who possess qualities for successful achievement and are earning grades that are average or above. Each applicant must be or have been a member of 4-H, FHA, FFA, HCE or be a child or grandchild of a current Waushara County HCE member.

 

Winners will be selected by the Waushara County HCE Scholarship Committee. The scholarship winners will be notified in April. The awards will be presented at the HCE Annual Achievement Night Award Program in May.
