AICCW Scholarship Program
Application Guidelines and Information


AICCW prides itself on taking a spherical approach to wealth building in our community. We believe that this circle would be incomplete if we neglected to invest in our generations to come. Ensuring that our young people are able to attain an education means we will perpetuate a continuous flow of people who are equipped and committed to being of service to their Nations. This is why we have made a commitment to offering academic scholarships to American Indian students seeking higher education.
Over the last 26 years we have disbursed over $360,000 and helped 179 students realize their academic dreams.

AICCW scholarships are distributed to American Indian students who reside in Wisconsin, both on and off reservation. These students must demonstrate a high aptitude for academic achievement and a financial need. Students that are awarded the AICCW scholarship receive $1,000 to $2500 each academic year (1/2 payment per semester) to offset student expenses including tuition, books, and living expenses. Each year, over 30 students apply for the AICCW Scholarship.

Funding for the AICCW Scholarship Program comes from AICCW Chamber Members, local foundations and businesses, and AICCW events such as the Annual Golf Outing, which is the major source of funds.

AICCW also works with the UW-Oshkosh School of Business to award the Dersken & Sons/UW-Oshkosh Scholarship in the amount of $2000 to a deserving UW-Oshkosh student majoring in business.
