About the Fund
The Dan Walker Old Abe Scholarship Fund aims to help graduating students at Memorial High School further their post-secondary education. Applicants must:
- Graduate from Memorial High School with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
- Be involved in community service.
- Participate in one extra-curricular athletic program at Memorial High School all four years.
- Plan to attend a 2-year or 4-year post-secondary educational institution.
The scholarship awarded each year is $500. When the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation's recommended annual distribution reaches $1,000, one $1,000 scholarship will be awarded. As the recommended annual distribution reaches the next $1,000 increment, another $1,000 scholarship will be awarded each year after that.
