We are pleased to offer scholarships to women who understand and believe in Impact100’s model and mission, but may not have the financial means to cover the full donation. Financial assistance – which is funded by Impact100 members and friends, as well as corporate matches and donations – is intended to nurture philanthropic giving among women in every season of life. Women who receive scholarships may fully participate in Impact100 Greater Wausau’s collective giving.
Beginning with our 4th grant cycle (2023-2024), an applicant may only receive one full ($1,000) scholarship membership from Impact100 Greater Wausau. However, she may receive half or partial scholarship memberships in subsequent years.
Scholarships are limited and based upon funds available. It is possible that some who apply will not receive a scholarship.
Decisions will be made, and recipients notified, by December 15 each year.
Applications received after the deadline will not be eligible for consideration.
Scholarship recipients will enjoy full membership privilege during the scholarship period, including the ability to be considered for a leadership position.
Impact100 Greater Wausau will not disclose the names of members granted scholarship outside of the Board of Directors and Scholarship Committee.
The Impact100 Greater Wausau Board of Directors reserves the right to amend or suspend this program without notice, at any time.
Serving on Impact100 Greater Wausau’s Board of Directors makes an applicant eligible for full scholarships for more than one year.
To be considered for a scholarship:
Apply by December 1. Recipients will be notified by December 15.
Commit to active participation in Impact100 Greater Wausau, including service on a committee (Communications, Events, or Grants). Women who apply or may apply are encouraged to attend events prior to the application deadline.

Donate $100 toward your membership. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if this presents a hardship.
