The Elmbrook Education Foundation supports the students at all 11 of the District's public schools through its Continuing Education Scholarship, Innovation Grant and Super Grant Programs. In addition, the Foundation has established an endowment held by the Waukesha County Community Foundation to provide a source of permanent support for Foundation programs. For more information, please refer to the Foundation's web site.
In 1958, three $500 scholarships were awarded to Brookfield High School students by a volunteer group of parent and community members. It has since grown into a community wide scholarship program made possible through the generosity of honorary/memorial funds, community groups, businesses and school PTOs. Having the EEF administer the program helps ensure that the greatest number of seniors can be honored by our community each year. The EEF takes great care to select recipients that meet the criteria provided by scholarship sponsors. Nearly $1,000,000 in scholarships has been awarded to our graduating seniors through the Elmbrook Education Foundation.
Last month, 22 students from Brookfield Central and Brookfield East received a $1500 scholarship during their respective Senior Honors Celebrations. The Foundation also helped identify candidates for 3 four year scholarships administered by the Ramiah Family. All scholarship students exhibit educational excellence, leadership, and service to their school and community. On behalf of the Elmbrook Education Foundation, congratulations to this year’s scholarship recipients and best of luck to the Class of 2010!
