The WROF, Inc. Board of Directors had a vision last year for a new WROF Scholarship. This vision is now coming to light in the WROF Premier Scholarship. The scholarship rewards up to $10,000 to a Wisconsin High School Senior pursuing a post-secondary education following graduation.
The recipient will be selected by an ad-hoc committee of the WROF. Upon selection, the recipients's high school will also be eligible to apply for a $5,000 grant to be applied to STEM or an agricultural project benefitting all students in the high school.
Scholarship applicants must be a high school senior at one of Wisconsin's public or private schools, who has been living in rural Wisconsin for at least two years. "Rural" is defined as traditional rural areas and rural towns of 25,000 population or less. The award will support tuition only, up to $2,500 per semester, for any post-high school experience in Wisconsin and will continue as long a 2.5 GPA is maintained.
The deadline to apply is midnight on February 28, 2020. If you know someone that would be a good match, send them our way. We look forward to sharing the recipient with you once we have received and thoroughly reviewed all of the applications!
