    We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships

     

If you are a student looking to apply for the Marshall Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars scholarships, you are in the right place!

The Marshall Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars® was established to perpetuate funds that promote educational opportunities for graduating seniors of Marshall High School/Marshall Charter School in Marshall, Wisconsin. Candidates for our scholarships demonstrate solid academic performance, good citizenship and a strong work ethic. The Foundation also serves to link deserving graduates of Marshall High School/Marshall Charter School to other scholarship sources, both local and national, the latter through our affiliation with Dollars for Scholars/Scholarship America®.

Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help hometown students achieve their educational goals by raising funds and distributing scholarships each year. Marshall Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars facilitates many local scholarships, including the Roelof and Wilma Kraak Family Scholarship, the Bernie Olson VFW Scholarship, the Catherine Lazers Bauer Scholarship, the Ernst Family Scholarship, the Ray and Darlene DeChant Scholarship and the Mary W.
