Community-Funded Scholarships

The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation currently administers 98 unique scholarship funds on the behalf of Elkhorn families, businesses, and organizations. This year, the Foundation is awarding 151 community-funded scholarships worth $209,500 to Elkhorn Public Schools’ seniors! We are extremely grateful for our scholarship donors, scholarship representatives, and volunteer selection committees (includes 285+ committee members!) who partner with the Foundation to provide these great scholarship opportunities for our Elkhorn students!

Over the next 5 months, we will be working with donors to establish scholarships at Elkhorn’s newest high school, Elkhorn North High School. We are currently in discussions with an Elkhorn family on how they may help jumpstart investments in new scholarships so that ENHS seniors may have the same opportunities as our other Elkhorn high schools. If your family or business is interested in offering a scholarship at any of the Elkhorn high schools, please contact our Scholarship Coordinator, Genice Chochon, at gchochon@elkhornfoundation.org for more information. Paperwork for new scholarships or changes to existing scholarships must be finalized prior to October 1st, 2021.
