Volunteerism Scholarship

United Way of West Central Minnesota believes that through hard work and determination, all of its young people have the potential to attain their long-term educational goals. Providing scholarship opportunities is one of the best ways we can give back to our youth leaders and volunteers who have given so much of their time and support.

The United Way of West Central Minnesota’s Volunteerism Scholarship recognizes four outstanding high school seniors who have given back to their community through volunteer service.  Four $500 Scholarships will be awarded and will be sent directly to the recipient’s college of attendance upon verification of enrollment.
