2021 scholarship application period is closed.  

Check back in December for next year’s opportunity. This year’s winners will be posted in May.


The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation will award more than $15,000 in scholarships to outstanding Wisconsin 4-H members and alumni pursuing higher education in 2021.  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 will screen the applications and select finalists.  Applications chosen as finalists will be screened by a second panel comprised of 4-H and youth development experts.  The finalist applications will be ranked.  The 4-H Foundation will assign 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 will be notified by postal letter and email in May.  This letter will include information about how to access the scholarship.  Scholarship awardees are required to email a photo to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation and send a thank-you note to the scholarship sponsor.  Scholarship recipients and portions of their application materials (including their photo) may be featured in Wisconsin 4-H Foundation materials.
