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.
The Elmbrook Education Foundation was founded by volunteers back in 1958 to support the community's value on continuing education. To date, close to $1,000,000 has been awarded in scholarships to assist our graduates attend institutions of higher learning. The Foundation's scholarship program now provides between 20-28 $1,500 scholarships each and every year making it the single largest community based scholarship program in the region. Most scholarships are sponsored by area businesses, civic organizations and honorary/memorial funds. The Foundation administers the program on their behalf at no cost in an effort to honor the most graduating seniors each and every year. Without the Foundation to administer the program, many of these scholarships would all go to the same few students. Recipients are matched to donor criteria and are awarded to students planning to attend both universities and technical schools. Some awards are based on financial need. Since the Foundation receives a large pool of applications, it is easier to find just the right recipient for each scholarship. Recipients are held confidential until Seniors Honors nights in May. The scholarships are awarded in the donor's name and are recognized throughout the District in a variety of publicity mediums.
