About the Fox River Scholarship Center
The Fox River Scholarship Center is a comprehensive online scholarship resource that simplifies the scholarship search and application process for local students and helps individuals and organizations promote the scholarships they fund.
This website is hosted by the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation, a 501(c )(3) nonprofit organization serving Winnebago, Waushara and Green Lake counties, and the city of Ripon in Fond du Lac County, Wis. The Community Foundation manages more than 650 charitable funds with more than $77 million in assets.
The Community Foundation strongly believes that scholarships have a tremendous impact on the students who receive them and can change the course of a young life. The Fox River Scholarship Center includes dozens of scholarships held at the Community Foundation as well as many more that are offered by local civic, community and other organizations. We partner with several area school districts to administer their Scholarship Funds, including public and private schools in Oshkosh, Omro, Winneconne, Wautoma, Green Lake and Ripon.
