Scholarship Recipient

Scholarships are an excellent way to offset the cost of your postsecondary education. There are numerous scholarships available to students of all academic standing. Some scholarships are awarded based on merit (grades, test scores, etc. ), others on skills or abilities (athletics, musical talents, etc.). Scholarships can be found based on your intended major or career interest (Engineering, Culinary Arts, etc.) or even by your ethnic background. There are scholarships available for ALL students.

Below are several places to start when searching for scholarships. We recommend starting with the MMSD Highlighted Scholarships and the scholarship site of your intended postsecondary institution (see WI school links below).

If you are a senior do not forget to complete your Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after October 1. This may qualify you for FREE money and/or work study. Most colleges and universities will require you to complete the FAFSA.

Note: Scholarships are sorted by the month or time of year when the APPLICATIONS ARE DUE.
