May means scholarship season for OACF
President and CEO Bill Wyman talks with Education Coordinator Cheryl Fowler about scholarships and support for education through the Foundation. Little known to the rest of the community, May means scholarship season for the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. Our staff, especially Cheryl, work at a feverish pace this time of year to coordinate the selection process and the awarding of hundreds of scholarships to students in the Oshkosh area. For 2016, the Foundation will award more than 200 scholarships totaling $287,020. Our volunteer committee members have a tough job narrowing down more than 600 applications, all from worthy students with plans to pursue further education.
