Posted by on Feb 3, 2017 in Latest News

All applications for the Community Foundation’s 34 competitive scholarship programs for the 2017-18 academic year are due by 10 p.m. on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.  Current graduating seniors at Fort Atkinson High school, former graduates, and residents of Fort Atkinson may all be eligible, depending upon the criteria attached to each scholarship.

To view all the scholarships offered by the Community Foundation and to see the criteria for each one, visit the foundation’s website at  After determining their eligibility here, students can then apply by following the links to “Fort Scholarships,” the online scholarship application website sponsored by the Community Foundation.

Applications on the Fort Scholarships site can be worked on intermittently as the work can be saved and applicants can log in later and pick up where they left off.  All applications must be submitted by 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017.  There is no advantage gained by submitting an application early as reviewers will not have access to any applications before the February 15th deadline.
