These scholarship opportunities are open to all employees of Chamber Members. Scholarships are formally awarded each year at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting.
Scholarships for High School Graduates
Since 1994, college scholarships have been awarded to Kenosha County High School students that display positive character, leadership skills, academic excellence, community involvement, and future aspirations. Among other qualifications, applicants must have a connection to the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce either through an employer or a parent/guardian’s employer. In 2021, the Foundation plans to award a minimum of four $2,500 scholarships.
Scholarship applications were due April 15, 2021. Please check back in January 2022 for next year’s opportunity!
Scholarships for Adult Learners
Since 2017, Herzing University has generously partnered with the Kenosha Chamber of Commerce to award scholarships to prospective students chosen by the Chamber’s scholarship committee. Scholarship recipients can enroll in any of the Herzing University programs offered on campus or online including degrees at the associate, bachelor’s, or master’s level. For 2021, the Chamber and Herzing plan to award two scholarships to adult learners.
The scholarship is intended to be a “debt-free full-ride”, which means the cost of all tuition, fees, and books will be covered in full after federal, state, institutional, and other grants or scholarships are applied for and accepted by the student, when eligible.
Scholarship applications are due May 31, 2021. Must be available for interview June 15, 2021.
