  • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
  • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
  • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
  • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
  • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
  • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
  • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
  • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
  • There is no available contact information

If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!

* There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

Scholarship Overview

The Herb Kohl Student Initiative Scholarship annually awards $10,000 to 100 college-bound high school seniors from Wisconsin. Each year, 100 different high schools are designated to award an Initiative Scholarship. The selection of schools is based on a multi-year rotation cycle, which allows every high school in Wisconsin to receive an Initiative Scholarship in rotation. Each designated school chooses its recipient through an internal selection and application process. Selected Initiative Scholars are students who: are unlikely to be eligible for other academic-based scholarships, have overcome personal obstacles or other adversity, have achieved an academic record that represents their maximum effort, and show strong promise for succeeding in college as well as other outstanding qualities.
