We know college is expensive – VERY expensive. (One book can cost hundreds of dollars!) Bloomer Broadband wants to help lighten the financial load.
Bloomer Broadband is proud, once again, to open the scholarship application to high school seniors in Bloomer, Colfax and Elk Mound and will be extending the opportunity to students at Chippewa Falls and McDonell Catholic high schools. We’re also increasing the number of scholarships. Last year we offered three $1000 scholarships, and this year we’re adding three $500 scholarships—giving six students the opportunity to receive a little something extra for college expenses.
Bloomer Broadband believes post-secondary education can lead to greater opportunities and prosperity, not only for the individual but also for the community. For more than a decade, we have offered a scholarship and have seen the significant impact the scholarship makes. We are committed to supporting the community beyond telecommunications—and offering a scholarship is a meaningful way to do just that.
To apply for the scholarship, the parents, guardians, or foster parents of the applicant must reside in Bloomer Broadband’s service area and be a customer of the Company. Applicants must complete the application form, write an essay (answering three questions), provide a letter of recommendation and a photo.
The deadline to submit the application is Wednesday, March 15, 2023.
Best of luck to all applicants!
