The mission of the Casper Area Education Foundation is to partner with the Natrona County community to invest financial and volunteer resources in our children's future.
This year, the Casper Area Education Foundation has awarded three $2,000 scholarships to outstanding seniors who have demonstrated exceptional academic excellence and dedication to expanding upon their educational journey with participation in extracurricular activities and community involvement.
In addition, three Academic Perseverance Scholarships were awarded to graduating seniors who have demonstrated academic or personal growth and exhibited extraordinary perseverance while working towards graduation.
Recipients of both scholarships also demonstrated a thoughtful plan for their future and hopes of giving back to their community.
Over the years, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to be able to support students on their next steps after graduation, whether that is attending a university, college, trade school, military academy, or a study abroad educational opportunity. In total, the Casper Area Education Foundation has provided over $77,200 in scholarships to students in Natrona County.
In addition, the CAEF oversees over twenty outside scholarships in honor of and in memory of families or individuals. We are fortunate to live in a community that continues to support education and provides opportunities for young people to pursue their educational journey and dreams.
