The Kenosha Community Foundation is now accepting applications for the Cropley Scholarship. Kenosha County residents who are currently attending college can apply for the Cropley Scholarships – all academic majors are welcome to apply.
In addition to a short application form and proof of Grade Point Average (GPA), such as a college transcript, the Foundation requests that all applicants answer two questions:
• How you are currently paying for your education?
• What you want to do once you complete your academic studies?
Responses to each question must be 250 words or less. Schneider says that “applicants’ responses should be well-written, clear, and concise. We strongly encourage the applicant to have a family member or friend review the responses before they submit with their application.”
New this year: all applications for the Foundation’s Cropley Scholarships must be submitted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for applications is Friday, June 15, 2018.
Recipients of the Foundation’s Cropley Scholarship will be announced later this summer.
