DIRECTIONS FOR REQUESTING SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS


You must request your scholarship funds each semester of the year in which it was awarded.  The deadline for first semester is October 1, and the deadline for second semester is February 1.  


If you miss the deadline, you will forfeit your award and 

your scholarship will be awarded to another student. 


Please notify the Pewaukee Scholarship Fund, Inc. of the address of your financial aid office at the time you receive your tuition bill.  This will insure that your school receives your money before you need to write your own check.  This scholarship is not meant to be a reimbursement to you, but rather a direct payment to the school for your tuition.


When you request your money, please include:


                1.    The address of the financial aid office of your school        

                2.    Your student and/or Social Security number

                                              

Email your request to Mr. Ron Vermillion at vermsi@att.net   

On the subject line, please type SCHOLARSHIP REQUEST.


In most cases, you will be called to the financial aid/bursar's office to endorse the check.  This is our safeguard that the money is going to the right student at the right school. If your school requests information regarding any scholarships you may be receiving, tell them you will be receiving money from the Pewaukee Scholarship Fund.  This is the source of ALL scholarship checks, except the American Legion Awards.  Those students receiving an American Legion scholarship have the information necessary in their cover letter.  This process goes very smoothly in most cases once you have provided the necessary information.  


If you know that you will not be attending school for any reason, please notify the Pewaukee Scholarship Fund, Inc. as a courtesy to the Pewaukee Scholarship Fund. 

PLEASE remember that you must request your funds for both the fall and spring semester!


The Pewaukee Scholarship Fund, Inc. is very thorough in its selection process and we are happy to make these educational funds available to you.  Congratulations!!
