Society’s Assets has made applications for the 2020 Scholarship Awards program available. Area high schools and colleges will receive application packets and the public may also obtain an application on our website.

College students with physical and/or sensory disabilities could be eligible for scholarships, with the number of awards to be determined. Applicants must reside in the Society’s Assets service area, which includes Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. Graduating high school seniors, continuing students, or adults returning to school on a full-time basis to seek a post-secondary degree in the fall of 2020 are eligible. Judging will be based on academic record, extracurricular activities, personal essay, and recommendations. All application materials must be postmarked by February 1, 2020.

Proceeds from the annual Society’s Assets Open Golf Outing are used to fund the Society’s Assets Scholarship Awards. The 2020 Scholarship Awards will be presented at the Society’s Assets Open on June 18, 2020. Golfers and sponsors can advance these efforts. For more information about the scholarship awards program or the golf outing, call 800-378-9128.

Society’s Assets is a local, community-based nonprofit providing services to individuals of all ages with any disability who live in Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. Each month, nearly 1000 individuals reach for their goal of living as independently as possible in the community with the agency’s support.
