Mission Statement: "To encourage and reward high school graduates in Waukesha County who have excelled in athletics, academics, and Christian service in their churches and communities."

For the past thirty two years, Divine Redeemer’s Christian Scholarship Foundation has been proud to award college scholarships to high school seniors that will graduate from a Waukesha County high school. We are pleased to announce that we will award five scholarships this year.

  • A $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to one deserving Christian male athlete and one to a deserving Christian female athlete.
  • The $5,000 Garrett Becker Scholarship will be given to an applicant who has overcome a significant obstacle in their life or if the applicant intends to work in the health care field.
  • The Jean Pordon Memorial Scholarship for $10,000 will be awarded to the candidate who will enter the music or education field.
  • The $11,000 Douglas Baker Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a student for their Christian leadership. The scholarships are to be used to pursue higher education. 

The Scholarship Banquet will be held on Sunday, April 30, 2023 beginning at 5:30PM, at The Ingleside Hotel, 2810 Golf Rd. in Pewaukee.
