Scholarship Opportunities

The Greater Green Bay Chamber promotes the valuing of education and lifelong love of learning, furthering this with a variety of scholarship opportunities. These include:

Technical College Scholarship

Partners in Education established this scholarship to promote technical college preparation and will be applied towards a technical diploma or associate degree program at a Wisconsin Technical College of the applicant’s choice.

This scholarship is given to two or more students planning to attend a technical post-secondary institution.

Applications for next year (the spring of 2020) will administered through the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. Please review their guidelines and updates on their website.


Brian LaViolette Foundation Scholarship

The Brian LaViolette Scholarship is a $10,000 scholarship designed to offer a high school senior student the inspiration to succeed and the financial backing to help make higher education possible. 



The Brian LaViolette Scholarship is awarded to one high school senior graduating from school districts that participate in the Partners in Education program of the Greater Green Bay Chamber. The Chamber will contact participating schools to provide them with the selection process details. Each school has the option to select one candidate from their school, who then submits an application to the Partners in Education selection committee. Each principal and/or high school counselor is asked to select a student based on his or her academic achievement, leadership and community involvementideals that were all very important to Brian LaViolette. Those students chosen should be considered team players with a thirst for knowledge, but most importantly, future leaders.

If you are a student interested in being nominated for this scholarship, speak with your high school principal and/or counselor. 


Once a student is nominated, he/she will receive a link to an electronic application and details. The student will need to provide information about his/her academic career as well as write an essay. 2018-2019 applications are now closed; nominations from principals and/or counselors are due each February. The recipient of the scholarship will be announced in May 2019.

Learn more about these scholarships by calling the Greater Green Bay Chamber at 920.593.3400.

5/12 Education Scholarship

The 5/12 scholarship is awarded to 5th-grade, at-risk students as an ongoing financial incentive to continue with their education through grade 12 and on to a post-secondary initiation. This scholarship is under the auspices of the Greater Green Bay Chamber and the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. 

During the 5th grade year, the student is awarded a certificate of the scholarship by the Chamber. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded at the time the student graduates from 12th grade and registers at a post-secondary institution.

Two (2) students from Partners In Education schools will be selected each year for the scholarship, as funds in the account are available.  Implementation began in the 1993-94 school year. At this time, the scholarships awards are on-hold for 5th grade students. All students awarded the scholarship in the past are encouraged to contact the Greater Green Bay Chamber or the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation as they graduate from high school to learn more about their scholarship funds.
