KMEF Scholarship Fund Overview

  • The Kettle Moraine Scholarship Fund was established in 1973 to assist Kettle Moraine graduates in pursuing education beyond high school at accredited institutions. The Fund receives its support from individuals and organizations within the community. The Fund and its affiliated donor organizations attempt to provide assistance to as many KM graduates as possible. Donor organizations set their own criteria and in most cases select their own recipients.

    An application for a KMEF Scholarship Fund scholarship automatically includes consideration for several different scholarships. (Note: Scholarships may be added and some participating groups may withdraw before May). The amount and number of the scholarships varies from year to year based on availability of funds and on the specific criteria of the donors. 


    Consideration will be given to all scholarship applicants based upon:

    1. Scholastic achievement
    2. School citizenship
    3. Potential for success in post-high school education
    4. Financial need (financial need is a prime consideration for some scholarships).

    Scholarship applications will be reviewed by many selection committees that include members of the KMEF Scholarship Fund Committee and/or representatives of the major funding groups. Family members are involved in the selection of many memorial scholarships.
