Aurora Health Foundation awards scholarships to 26 local students

This summer, the Aurora Health Foundation awarded scholarships to 26 students in Oshkosh, Sheboygan and Manitowoc. Scholarships were awarded based on academic record, personal essay, leadership qualities, community involvement and extracurricular activities.

The Aurora Health Foundation Academic Scholarship Program has distributed more than $377,000 to area students since 2001. Support from generous donors help to provide scholarship assistance.

This year, scholarship awards totaled $1,000 for recipients from Fond du Lac County, $13,000 for recipients from Manitowoc County and $22,000 for recipients from Sheboygan County.  Nearly all of the scholarships are for students who are planning to pursue a career in health care.
