    We Help Our Community's Students Succeed Through Scholarships

If you are a student looking to apply for the Marshall Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars scholarships, you are in the right place!

The Marshall Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars® was established to perpetuate funds that promote educational opportunities for graduating seniors of Marshall High School/Marshall Charter School in Marshall, Wisconsin.  Candidates for our scholarships demonstrate solid academic performance, good citizenship and a strong work ethic.  The Foundation  also serves to link deserving graduates of MHS/MCS to other scholarship sources, both local and national, the latter through our affiliation with Dollars for Scholars/Scholarship America®.

Dollars for Scholars chapters like ours help hometown students achieve their educational goals by raising funds and distributing scholarships each year.  Marshall Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars facilitates scholarships for the Roelof and Wilma Kraak Family Scholarship, Bernie Olson VFW Scholarship, Catherine Lazers Bauer Scholarship, Ernst Family Scholarship, Lorie Nikolay Memorial Scholarship and the Mary W Stremmer Education Trust Fund (Marshall and Waterloo).
