Rising Star Scholarship accepting fall applications
For the Gazette
PORTAGE COUNTY – Wisconsin Illinois Senior Housing Inc. (WISH) is accepting applications through Oct 1 for their Rising Stars Scholarship.
The WISH Rising Stars Scholarship Program was born out of COVID-19 in an effort to build something positive out of the pandemic when many high school students applied for jobs at WISH senior care facilities to help others during what turned out to be one of the most difficult & lonely times for seniors. This is WISH’s way of giving back to our communities and investing in our next generation.
Although not required, students with an interest in health care, long term care or post-acute care are encouraged to apply. The scholarship is open to Wisconsin and Illinois high school students and WISH employees.
About $67,000 has been awarded to 40 recipients since Fall of 2020.
Fall 2021 awards will be announced on or around Nov 1, 2021.
