Beaver Dam High School Scholarship Program

The Beaver Dam High School Scholarship Program awards scholarships to graduating seniors who are furthering their education at a college/university, technical, or community college. Scholarships are awarded based on four equally weighted categories: Academic Achievement, Difficulty of Courses Taken, Personal Traits, and Service to Others. Students must also demonstrate leadership ability in their school and community. Financial need is not a criterion.

The scholarships are funded through the generosity of supporters of education in Beaver Dam and Dodge County. Funds are received from memorials, estates, trusts, corporations, service organizations, community groups, and individuals.

Beaver Dam Scholarship Foundation

The Foundation was created in August of 1991 by eighteen local citizens concerned with the rising costs of education and was organized as a tax-exempt public charity. From its inception, the mission of the Foundation has been to provide talented local students with funds to attend either a 4-year college or a technical college of their choice. An awards formula was established based on 50% need and 50% merit, and the student applications are graded and scored by out-of-town judges to avoid local bias in determining who receives these awards.

The Foundation is a permanently endowed volunteer organization with total annual expenses less than 3% of assets. The endowment funds are managed professionally, and the fund is expected to grow over time to a point where all local graduates who need assistance can be helped, because education is the gift of the current generation to the future.
