Applications for Wilsterman Scholarships may be submitted by students who have graduated from a high school located within Genesee County, Michigan. Applications may be submitted in any of the six years following the year of graduation from high school. Unlike typical scholarships, GPA is not a controlling factor. The Wilsterman Foundation is interested first and foremost in finding students who have great potential but may have struggled in high school due to extenuating circumstances such as work, family issues, setbacks or even “late blooming”.
The Wilsterman Foundation is currently offering scholarships up to a maximum of $5,000 per year which can be received for up to four years. Awards are made at the sole and absolute discretion of the Advisory Board. The John F. and Edith L. Wilsterman Scholarships are the culmination of a long commitment which was to be fully realized only after Jack and Edith had passed. Begun in a small way in the later years of Edith’s life, the Wilstermans saw to it that their dream would continue on for many years, leaving the majority of their considerable estate to the foundation.
Our community has been wonderfully blessed by the generosity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and vision of Jack and Edith Wilsterman which will benefit “their kids” for decades to come.
