Community Foundation Scholarships in Wisconsin

For two years in a row, Kings Wisconsin students have received academic scholarships through Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, Inc.

Since 1948, Community Foundation has awarded more than $19 million in scholarships.

Second year students, Polina Ibragimova, from Russia, and Jihae Choi, from South Korea, were awarded a scholarship after submitting an application.

Polina “Lina” Ibragivmova was awarded $1,500 through the Jackie Johnson Fox Communities Credit Union Scholarship Fund, which helps students majoring in, or studying, Information Technology. Lina is the President of the Computer Science Club at UWO-Fox Cities and is majoring in Computer Science.

Jihae Choi was awarded $900 through the Esther Kliefoth Stutzman Excellence Scholarship. The recipient of the award must demonstrate excellence with grades (3.5 GPA) or achievement. Jihae is currently the Communications Director of Student Government at UWO-Fox Cities.

It is often difficult to be eligible for academic scholarships as an international student studying in the US. However, at UWO-Fox Cities, Kings Wisconsin staff help students apply and submit applications to see if they can be awarded a scholarship, which can add to their student profile when applying to a transfer university.
