The Wisconsin Figure Skating Club (WFSC) Scholarship Committee is
pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2019 Gale
and Tom Tanger Scholarship.
The Tanger Scholarship Fund was created to provide
financial aid to a Scholar-Athlete from the Wisconsin Figure Skating Club. The scholar-athlete must be a graduating high
school senior student. The funds are generated from the profits of the annual
Skate Milwaukee Competition. In 2009 the
Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Figure Skating Club (WFSC) voted to
establish this fund in the name of Gale and Tom Tanger, founders of the Skate
Milwaukee competition. The award of the
scholarship will be determined by a three to five-member review committee.
The Gale and Tom Tanger Scholarship is a merit
based scholarship. This scholarship is not based on need. It is created as a cash award/recognition to
a selected recipient(s). Candidates may
apply through an online application form found on the WFSC web-site. This scholarship is open to home club members
of the Wisconsin Figure Skating Club who have met all the selection criteria.
Criteria to be met by the applicant will include, but not
limited to, the following:
Acceptance and full-time enrollment into a major
college or university
Extracurricular and volunteer activities.
The award will be announced by April 16 and will be
presented at the annual WFSC Banquet. The
committee will make every attempt to acknowledge each recipient in person at
the Scholarship Recognition Assembly or Program at the recipient’s school.
The application and all supporting materials
must be fully completed and postmarked by March 31, 2019, or the applicant will not
be considered. All materials must be sent to: Thomas
Tanger, Scholarship Chair. Any questions regarding the application may be
emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
for your interest in the WFSC Academic Athlete Scholarship. The committee looks
forward to receiving your application.
