AICCW Scholarship Program
AICCW prides itself on taking a spherical approach to wealth building in our community. We believe that this circle would be incomplete if we neglected to invest in our generations to come. Ensuring that our young people are able to attain an education means we will perpetuate a continuous flow of people who are equipped and committed to being of service to their Nations. This is why we have made a commitment to offering academic scholarships to American Indian students seeking higher education. Over the last ten years we have disbursed over $262,500 and helped 139 students realize their academic dreams.
AICCW scholarships are distributed to American Indian students who reside in Wisconsin, both on and off reservation. These students must demonstrate a high aptitude for academic achievement and a financial need. Students that are awarded the AICCW scholarship receive $1,000 to $2,500 each academic year ($500 – $1250 per semester) to offset student expenses including tuition, books, and living expenses. Each year, over 50 students apply for the AICCW Scholarship.
AICCW also works with H. Dersken & Sons/UW-Oshkosh Scholarship in the amount of $2000 to a deserving UW-Oshkosh student majoring in business. Other funding for the AICCW Scholarship Program comes from AICCW Chamber Members, local foundations and businesses, and AICCW events including the Annual Golf Outing and Annual Banquet.
2013-2014 applications must be postmarked by May 13, 2013.
