Rhinelander Community Scholarship Awards will be presented May 18
The Rhinelander Community Scholarship Awards 27th Annual Ceremony will be held Sunday, May 18 at the Rhinelander High School Auditorium beginning at 3 p.m.
This year the Rhinelander Area Scholarship Foundation will be awarding $16,500 to graduating seniors. Due to local support this is an increase of $1,500 from 2013. Additionally, other local scholarships from approximately 80 donors are given annually.
The Rhinelander Area Scholarship Foundation was established in 1991 and is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization with a volunteer governing board. RASF raises money for and distributes scholarships to Rhinelander students, many of whom may not get scholarship support from other sources.
Two Rhinelander area families will be honored at this year’s award ceremony for becoming lifetime donors.
To become a lifetime donor a contribution of $1,000 or more is made to the Rhinelander Area Scholarship Foundation.
