Scholarship Application Guideline

Mia Obergefell

2017 Academic Scholarship Award Winner – Mia Obergefell

These awards have been presented annually by the 6th Ward Athletic Club, in some cases, going back to the early 1970’s.  The values of their annual awards have steadily risen over time thanks to the generosity of the Club, its members and associated friends of the Club.  A three member committee of scholars developed the Club’s scholarship criteria and evaluate student applications each year.
