We’re excited to offer scholarships for the first time in 2022 to WHS graduates! Scholarships are funded through generous contributions from Wausaukee Alumni.
Scholarship Overview The scholarship award can cover qualified education expenses including tuition and fees, course-related expenses such as books, supplies, and equipment.
Scholarship award is $750 per year and can be renewed annually up to a maximum of $2,250 based on length of study.
The scholarship award starts after the first year of study and needs to be renewed annually (see details below). We’ve done this to: 1) encourage academic program completion, 2) spread out the award since many scholarships provide funding in year one, and 3) allow other Ranger Alumni to encourage and support the award recipients during the annual renewal meeting. We’re cheering for you!

Scholarship Details Each scholarship is $750 per academic program year starting the 2nd year of each award recipient’s studies and is contingent upon completing the annual renew process (detailed below). This scholarship is only available for a maximum of 3 sequential year awards ($2,250 max). For example, if an award recipient is entering a 4 year college program, this scholarship is payable in the fall of the award recipient’s sophomore, junior, and senior year ($2,250 total) contingent upon completing the renewal process. If an award recipient is entering a 2 year technical college program, this scholarship is payable after the student’s first year of study ($750 total), again contingent upon the student completing the renewal process.
