By Jill Englund, Board Member and Scholarship Coordinator
‘Tis the season to apply for scholarships!
As scholarship coordinator, I have the honor of reading applications, working with schools, and informing our recipients that they have won! I have been part of the Board of Directors for Warrior 196 Leadership Foundation for about a year and a half now, and am proud to be part of a team that gives back to the community where I grew up, in memory of my dear friend Chris Goeke. Reading each years' scholarship applications is a favorite annual experience. Students write inspiring essays about leaders in their community and in the world, and it makes me proud to be part of their journey as they pursue higher education.
If you are a senior at Apple Valley, Eagan, Eastview or Rosemount High School, please consider applying for one of our $2000 scholarships. Applications are due at the end of spring break: Sunday, March 27, 2022. Winners will be announced at each school’s awards ceremony in May.
Applications are submitted here. We recommend students write their answers in another program, use a spelling and grammar check, then copy/paste responses into the forms linked below because you cannot save it and come back to it on our website.
Any District 196 senior is eligible to apply here.
Students who participate in the AVID program can apply here.
Warrior 196 Leadership Foundation is proud to have awarded over $100,000 in scholarship funds since 2011 to District 196 graduates. Encouraging young leaders is a core part of our mission as an organization, and all funds raised go directly back to that mission. We are grateful for contributions from the Apple Valley Rotary Club, which has helped us increase our award amounts to $2000 per award. This will make 2022 a great year of giving!
We can’t wait to hear your stories!
