Laura Kaeppeler Creates Scholarship Fund At Carthage College To Assist With Tuition, Fees For Freshman Students

The new Laura M. Kaeppeler ‘10 Scholarship Fund bolsters the current Laura Kaeppeler Kenosha Scholarship, open to City of Kenosha residents.

KENOSHA, WISCONSIN – Laura Kaeppeler, Miss America 2012 winner, and 2010 graduate of Carthage College, today announced the creation of the Laura M. Kaeppeler ‘10 Scholarship Fund to help students in the City of Kenosha with their college education expenses. 

There are eight full-tuition scholarships available for freshmen entering Carthage College for the 2022-23 school year, with one named in honor of Laura Kaeppeler’s contributions and commitment to her alma mater. The Laura M. Kaeppeler ’10 Scholarship Fund will serve to bolster this scholarship fund in perpetuity.

“I know the cost of college can be overwhelming for some students and families,” Kaeppeler said. “So enhancing the Kenosha Scholarship is one small way that I can give back to this amazing community, and help a deserving student.”

The Laura Kaeppeler Kenosha Scholarship, worth more than $125,000, is awarded each year to a meritorious Kenosha student.  The scholarship competition takes place on-campus in January 2022, where prospective Kenosha Scholars will complete an essay and have a conversation with Carthage College faculty and staff. 

How to apply:

Candidates interested in the Kenosha Scholarship Competition must complete the following no later than December, 2021:

  • Submit an application for admission to Carthage and supporting materials, including high school transcripts.
  • Submit the Kenosha Scholarship Application (available October 2021).
  • Submit a 250-word essay: Evaluate how a significant experience or achievement in your life has helped shape who you are today (this is part of the online scholarship application).
  • Submit a list of all high school and community organizations and activities (including work) in which you have participated (this is part of the online scholarship application).

The Office of Admissions will review applications and high school transcripts, and qualified applicants will be notified in late December 2021.
