The Marshfield Area Community Foundation announces Scholarships to area students. MACF has over 70 scholarship funds and awarded scholarships to 82 recipients in 2019. Our funds are giving over $140,000 in tuition assistance for the 2020-2021 school year! We are very proud of the individuals, businesses, organizations, and families who have stepped forward to provide this wonderful demonstration of confidence in our young people and belief in the importance of education. To learn more about our scholarships see our application page or click here.
We have winners from High Schools from throughout our service area and beyond- Marshfield, Columbus, Abbotsford, Auburndale, Bloomer, Colby, Friendship, Gilman, Greenwood, Loyal, Medford, Neillsville, Owen, Park Falls, Pittsville, Prentice, Spencer, Stevens Point, Stratford, Wisconsin Rapids, and even Fort Atkinson High School in Iowa. We have non-traditional students who are going back to school after a gap in their education. We have many local students pursing dance workshops this summer. We are proud of all of these students and their ambition and their dedication to furthering their education.
Awards Nights are held during the month of May. It is an opportunity to bring together the students who have earned these scholarships and their families who support them. It is a chance for the people who established these scholarships to meet the students who their scholarship will benefit. The scholarship fund holders have made a commitment to the future. They saw the value in investing in the future through educating our youth. These students are our future. It is in good hands.
The Foundation is profoundly grateful to the donors who have created or contributed to the funds we manage. They are our life blood. Without these caring and generous people, the Foundation would not exist. The health of the Foundation and the community depends on an ever expanding family of donors who will come forward to address the needs of the area through their charitable giving.
