Scholarships for children of Oshkosh Corp. employees
The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships annually to students primarily in Winnebago County, Green Lake County, Waushara County and Ripon, Wis., who are pursuing a college degree or technical career.
We partner with several area school districts to administer scholarship funds including public and private schools in Green Lake, Neenah, Oshkosh, Omro, Princeton, Ripon, Wautoma and Winneconne.
The Community Foundation strongly believes that scholarships have a tremendous impact on the students who receive them and can change the course of a young life. We encourage you to search our extensive database at FoxRiverScholarshipCenter.org.
Our online application enters students in the selection process for all of the Community Foundation's scholarships. Our database includes financial need and merit based scholarships for more than 150 scholarships offered by donors, as well as local and state organizations and businesses.
