    The Waukesha County 4-H Leaders’ Association is once again offering the opportunity to apply for higher education scholarships. The Association has budgeted up to $10,000 to be awarded to qualifying 4-H members.  Applications are evaluated by a selection committee based on:  20% Scholastic Achievement, 40% 4-H Club Achievement, 20% 4-H County Achievement, 10% 4-H State & National Achievement, and 10% for Community and non 4-H Achievement.  If you qualify, you will receive a scholarship award from $100 to a maximum of $1000.  Actual amount is proportional to the evaluation results.  Scholarship awards will be announced at the Senior Member Recognition Event.  If you are awarded a scholarship, you will receive an acknowledgement letter and form explaining additional requirements that must be met to receive the money.  (See the sample letter and form for full details.)
