The Education Foundation of New Berlin is accepting applications for

The Peter Michaud Memorial Scholarship

Two deserving graduating seniors (one from New Berlin Eisenhower, one from New Berlin West) will each receive a $1,000 scholarship award to attend any accredited post-secondary institution (such as: trade or vocational school, college, or university). Awards will be paid directly to the institution the student is attending in Fall/Winter 2022.

The Foundation’s Peter Michaud Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2021 by School District of New Berlin educators at Ronald Reagan Elementary School. Each year, for the next five years, the Student Council at Ronald Reagan Elementary School will donate the proceeds from its annual Penny Wars to fund these scholarships and establish an endowment to fund scholarships in perpetuity. Mr. Michaud was a beloved elementary school teacher to many in the School District of New Berlin; because of his passion for world travel and exploration, candidates will submit an essay expressing their own interest or experience with travel and/or world exploration.

Scholarships shall be awarded entirely at the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Education Foundation of New Berlin. Scholarships shall be granted based on a combination of factors demonstrated in this application including the applicant's demonstrated leadership and volunteerism, and strong community/school involvement.
