2018 Foldcraft Scholarship Opportunity
Posted on April 09, 2018
Foldcraft Continuous Giving Scholarship 2018
Our employee-owned business was established from the philanthropic roots of our founder, Harold Nielsen, who gave his business to the employees who helped him grow it. Foldcraft’s employee-owners visualize giving back as an important part of living and working in a local community. The Foldcraft Charitable and Community Relations Committee is proud to announce we will be providing opportunities for qualified individuals to receive a $500 scholarship to support plans to continue their education beyond high school. The scholarships are not awarded based on financial need or scholastic achievement; rather provide the opportunity for continuing education financial assistance to any student who shows leadership and community involvement in their community outside of scholastic activities.
Foldcraft will award two (2) individual $500 scholarships – one is reserved for a Kenyon-Wanamingo graduating senior and one for a Foldcraft employee-owner or the spouse, grandchild, or dependent child of a Foldcraft employee-owner who is graduating from high school in 2018 and planning to attend an accredited institution offering post-secondary education and/or career training and instruction.
Selection of the recipients will be conducted in an anonymous review of the essays by the Foldcraft Charitable and Community Relations Committee. All decisions are final. Scholarship recipients will be announced by May 11, 2018. A $500 scholarship check will be issued to Foldcraft directly payable to the financial institution of the student no later than September 1, 2018. Questions regarding the scholarship program or application process should be directed to Dawn Rohl at Foldcraft #507-789-8261.
Scholarship applications may be downloaded from Foldcraft.com or available for pickup at 615 Centennial Dr, Kenyon. Kenyon-Wanamingo students may obtain the application form also at K-W Middle/High School.
Completed applications must be returned to Foldcraft, Attn: CCR Committee, 615 Centennial Dr, Kenyon, MN 55946-1297 postmarked no later than April 27, 2018.
• A Foldcraft employee and/or their spouse, grandchild, dependent child is qualified for a scholarship as long as the employee is currently employed, is not on a leave of absence, and has been employed for no less than six months.
