Scholarships for Students

The Marshfield Area Community Foundation announces Scholarships to area students. MACF has 50 scholarship funds and awarded scholarships to 52 recipients. Our funds are giving over $60,000 in tuition assistance for the 2013-2014 school year! In 1997 we gave our first scholarship. Now there are 66. In the last 15 years we have awarded 485
scholarships, valued at almost $443,000 with the average scholarship awarded was $913. We are very proud of the
individuals, businesses, organizations, and families who have stepped forward to provide this wonderful demonstration of faith in our young people and belief in the importance of education.

We have winners from High Schools from throughout our service area- Marshfield, Columbus, Colby, Curtiss, Greenwood, Loyal, Medford, Neillsville, Owen, Spencer, Stratford, Unity, 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 scholarship events are the absolute favorite part of my job and I think you can see why. These students are our future. It is in good hands.
