Congratulations to the 2020 Scholarship Recipients!   

Over $19,000 was awarded to support higher learning for accomplished 4-H youth.

The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation is proud to announce this year’s scholarship recipients. A record number of exemplary applications were submitted for consideration. Scholarships are awarded through company and individual endowed funds by supporters who share a passion for 4-H and the leadership and life skills it teaches.

Selection Process

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

Applications are accepted during the application period beginning in December. Check back later in the year for details on how to apply for the 2021 opportunity.
