This year the Cottage Grove Community Foundation is offering two $1,000 scholarships to Cottage Grove 2022 graduating Seniors.
One scholarship will focus on front line workers (i.e. medical & first responders) and the other will be for a student pursuing a career in the trades (i.e. electrician, plumber, carpenter, etc) continuing their education after High School in a recognized apprenticeship or attending college.
3/21/2022 - Deadline for students to return completed local scholarship applications.
5/18/2022 - Senior Recognition Night invitation letters sent to students.
Students should talk to their guidance counselor for additional information.
A special thanks to Oakstone Recreational for its continued support of the Foundation. On February 6, 2022 Oakstone hosted a Meat Raffle. Over $2,500 was raised and will go towards starting the Endowment for the Foundation.
