THE FOUNDATION CELEBRATES SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
This year The Van Wert County Foundation (VWCF) hosted its Annual Scholarship Celebration in August. This event was held at The Wassenberg Art Center to recognize the recent student scholarship recipient’s accomplishments and provided an opportunity for them to connect with VWCF Board of Trustee members, staff, and community business leaders.
Several recipients took this opportunity to learn about the donor fund associated with their scholarship. Many felt it was important to know the person or family who established the fund and has assisted in their education and future.
The Van Wert County Foundation awards annual scholarships through an application and review process. In 2017, 241 recipients received a combined total of $803,985 provided through 83 funds established for scholarship purposes.
