Society's Assets will make applications for the 2024 Scholarship Awards program available in October. Area high schools and colleges will receive application packets. The public may also obtain applications by calling 1-800-378-9128 or visiting the Society's Assets website.

College students with disabilities could be eligible for scholarships, with more than $5,000 awarded in total. Applicants must reside in the Society's Assets service area, which includes Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties. Graduating high school seniors, continuing students, or adults returning to school on a full-time basis to seek a post-secondary degree in the fall of 2024 are eligible. Judging will be based on academic record, extracurricular activities, personal essay, and recommendations. All application materials must be postmarked/submitted by February 1, 2024.

Society's Assets has supported the scholarshp fund with help from donors and fund raising events since 1998. Over $200,000 has been awarded to 55 college students. Recipients have pursued careers in finance, medical research, education, marketing, and many other fields. "The agency is proud of its commitment to advance the educational and career goals of college students with disabilities," said Theresa Gilliland, Chairperson of the Board of Directors. "Every person has the right to develop their talents and abilities through higher education," Gilliland added. The 2024 Scholarship Awards will be presented at a reception in June.
