Since 1999, the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation has been supporting our communities by assisting and enabling their efforts towards self-improvement. However, we know there is more we can do and that our communities have a real need to create a more educated and skilled workforce, and to make education and training more affordable. To help address this overwhelming need found in communities throughout Wisconsin, the Forest County Potawatomi Community and its Foundation created a scholarship program for Wisconsin residents. Different scholarship opportunities are available for any Wisconsin resident seeking to enroll in one of Wisconsin’s accredited Educational Institutes.
An eligible applicant for the Delores Pemma Scholarship is defined as a Wisconsin resident seeking to enroll or currently accepted as a first year, full or part time degree seeking student at an accredited 2 year Wisconsin Educational Institute starting in the upcoming Fall semester. The Delores Pemma Recipient will receive a $2,500 scholarship disbursement once per fall academic school year. The scholarship award may be applied to tuition & fees. All scholarship application documents are reviewed and scored by the Foundation’s Advisory Committee. Applicants are requested to volunteer academic documents to the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation for the application process and during the scholarship term. Applicants must maintain a 2.5 GPA for renewal.
