Scholarship Program

Community Funded Scholarships & ACHIEVE Scholarship Program

In 2017 the Foundation launched a new customized scholarship software platform by WizeHive! Students apply online for scholarships which eliminates redundant tasks and paper applications. Our new system is so easy and user friendly that we saw a huge increase in the number of scholarship applications submitted.

The scholarship application portal for the 2022 scholarship season will be available on December 1st. The deadline to submit scholarship applications will be 5pm on February 1st. All applicants will be notified mid-April by email.  Please see below for more information about our scholarship program.

 

Community Funded Scholarships

The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation encourages students to continue their education after high school and has made a significant investment in building a robust scholarship program. Not only does the Foundation fund scholarships, but we have invested in technology, staffing, and a matching fund program to make it easy for donors to partner with us to provide additional opportunities for Elkhorn students.

Elkhorn North High School Added to Program

The Foundation will be focusing on adding Elkhorn North High School scholarships to our online scholarship platform.

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.  Graduating seniors who achieve designated criteria and submit an application will receive an ACHIEVE Scholarship from the Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation.
