The Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation awards scholarships to students that display positive character, leadership skills, academic excellence, community involvement, and future aspirations.
Each year, the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors as well as adults looking to further their education at the associates, bachelors, or masters level. These scholarship opportunities are open to all employees of Chamber Members. Scholarships are formally awarded each year at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting in late summer.
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 2020, the Foundation plans to award a minimum of four $2,500 scholarships.
Scholarship applications were due May 8, 2020. Check back in January for 2021 Scholarship information.
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 associates, bachelors or masters level. For 2020, 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 July 17, 2020. Must be available for interview in early August 2020.
