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 July.


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 2017, the Foundation awarded five $3,000 scholarships.


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.

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.
