Applications being accepted for Alumni Scholarship now offered under newly-named Allamakee Scholarship Fund

The year 2015 marks the 10th year for the alumni scholarship originally instituted by the former Allamakee Dollars for Scholars (ADFS) Board of Directors and now being continued by the newly-named Allamakee Scholarship Fund, Inc. after the group's more localized reorganizational efforts this past year. The award is made to a Waukon High School (WHS) graduate who participated in the former Allamakee Dollars for Scholars program while in high school and received an ADFS award as a graduating senior.
The scholarship is available for college sophomores or higher level students who have been out of high school two years. The Allamakee Scholarship Fund Board feels it is important to continue the encouragement to WHS graduates as they continue their education, not just as they start their post-high school program. The group wishes to encourage participation in community service and college activities that are part of their educational growth and preparation for career and community life.
Scholarship criteria include academic achievement, student participation in college activities, especially in their field of study, and community service.
Applications are available on the Allamakee Scholarship Fund, Inc. website at All application forms and recommendations for the Allamakee Schlarship Fund Alumni Scholarship are due to the Waukon High School Guidance Office by April 1.
