Waubonsee Foundation

The Waubonsee Community College Foundation was chartered in 1978 as a 501(c)3 tax exempt, nonprofit organization.

Waubonsee Community College opens the door of knowledge, sparks imagination and enlightens lives through learning. The Waubonsee Foundation strengthens this vision by providing opportunities for all citizens in our community to have access to a quality education.

Each year the Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for deserving area students. For the 2013-2014 academic year, the Foundation was able to award 200 scholarships totaling $139,765 to 168 students.

The 2014-2015 academic year online application process for Foundation scholarships will be available Nov. 1, 2013. No paper applications will be accepted.  Learn more about applying for a 2014-2015 scholarship.
