We are so excited about how successful this foundation has become. This money will be going to a variety of scholarships. Some of the money will be donated to WCTC to allow financially in need students to pursue a technical college education. We also have 2 $1,000 scholarships for graduating students at Arrowhead High School. Lastly, a majority of the money will be going to scholarships with All In Milwaukee. We are partnering with All in Milwaukee to give multiple $5,000 a year scholarships to students going to college. This means they will receive a total of $20,000 through their four years. Recipients who attend UW, UWM, or Whitewater will also have that $5,000 per year matched by the university. 39% of All in Milwaukee students graduate with no debt, and those who do have less than half of the state average. The students receiving the scholarships are mostly first generation, low income, students of color.They are assigned to a professional advisor who helps them navigate the complexities of college including financial aid, course planning, living situations, and more, including academic and career counseling as well as health and wellness support.
Thank you again to everyone who has supported the scholarship foundation.
