Community Funded Scholarships
The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation adminsters scholarships on behalf of community businesses, families and organizations. In 2017 the Foundation launched a new customized scholarship software platform by WizeHive! Students were able to apply online for community funded scholarships which eliminated redundant tasks and paper applications. Our new system was so easy and user friendly that we saw a huge increase in the number of scholarship applications submitted. In 2017, we received over 1,600 applications, a 37% increase from the prior year! Click here for last year’s winners – 2017 Community Funded Scholarship Winners
Click on the school name below to view a description of the scholarships available to the students graduating May 2018. Scholarship applications will be available online on December 1st. The deadline to submit scholarship applications is 6pm on February 1st.
Continued education for our students is imperative; our goal is to help students further their education by providing financial support. If you are interested in establishing a scholarship for Elkhorn students, please email Genice Chochon at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Foundation at 402.289.1727.
ACHIEVE Scholarship Program
In 2015 the Foundation created an new ACHIEVE Scholarship program to recognize and reward students who engage in academically rigorous coursework while maintaining balance in other areas of interest within our schools and community. The Foundation awarded approximately $126,000 in ACHIEVE Scholarships to students graduating from Elkhorn High and Elkhorn High School in May 2017.
