The Waterloo Community Foundation announces that applications are now being accepted from area high school seniors for three scholarships:
QUEST SCHOLARSHIP, a $1,000 award to a student at East, West or Expo pursuing a career in field of education or science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). A minimum of 16 hours of volunteer service during the student’s senior year is a requirement.
TODD BREKKE MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP, a $1,000 award to a student at West or Expo pursuing a career in the arts (computer graphics, painting, design, etc.) or skilled trade area such as auto repair/mechanics, welding or carpentry. The donors are particularly interested in “those students who are not going to be winning thousands of dollars in scholarships and someone who is quietly but diligently pursuing his/her passion.” The donor’s intent is to award this scholarship to a student who has similar talents that Todd Brekke (West ’90) possessed.
HUBERT AND GEORGIA ROSSIN SCHOLARSHIP, a $2,500 award to a student at a Waterloo public or parochial school that has been or is currently residing in a foster care home. Hubert and Georgia not only raised their own six children, but opened up their Waterloo home regularly to young people residing in the foster care system. This scholarship is dedicated to those who have provided a loving home to those in need.
Applications are available at: https://www.wloocommunityfoundation.org/scholarships/ and must be received at the Foundation’s office by 5 pm on Friday, March 6, 2020.
