The Wisconsin Rural Opportunities Foundation (WROF) is thrilled with the response to our first-ever Premier Scholarship Award, an award of $10,000 that will be presented to a Wisconsin high school senior pursuing a post-secondary education following graduation. More than 300 students from throughout Wisconsin submitted applications to our office at the end of February. The interest in this award is
tremendous; it validates that there are definite needs for funding education after high school.
Please know that our candidates are ALL exceptional young people. Each of you - students and parents - should be proud of your success and contributions. Applications are being reviewed (virtually!) by our team of judges. They will soon gather to review the finalists and make the selection. It is our hope that our judges will complete their work no later than May 15th. You will be notified of their decision
by email once their decision is made.
Thank you for your interest in WROF and our Premier Scholarship. May you and yours be well during these challenging times.
