       The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation awarded scholarships to outstanding Wisconsin 4-H members and alumni pursuing higher education in 2022. Wisconsin 4-H Foundation scholarships are awarded to students based on demonstrated personal growth through 4-H, development and leadership in 4-H, academic performance and future educational goals. 

Selection Process

A panel of experienced youth educators screened the applications and selected finalists.  Applications chosen as finalists were screened by a second panel comprised of 4-H and youth development experts.  The finalist applications were ranked.  The 4-H Foundation assigned available scholarships to the top-ranking applications based on scholarship criteria (example: scholarships are available for specific geographical areas and project areas).


Applicants who are awarded scholarships were notified by postal letter and email in May.  This letter includes information about how to access the scholarship. Scholarship recipients and portions of their application materials (including their photo) may be featured in Wisconsin 4-H Foundation materials and press releases.
