Christian Athletic Scholarship Foundation

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 years, Divine Redeemer’s Christian Scholarship Foundation has been proud to award Christian 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 $3,000 scholarship will be awarded to a deserving male applicant and one to a female applicant. The 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 $9,000 will be awarded to the candidate who will enter the music or education field. The $10,000 Douglas Baker Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a student for their Christian leadership. The scholarships are to be used to pursue higher education.

In years past the scholarship awards have been announced at our annual Scholarship Awards Banquet in late April. Due to the COVID situation we are unsure at this time if or when the awards banquet will take place. All applicants will be notified of our plan for awarding the scholarships no later than the end of May.
