The Stars Grants have been a signature project of the Wausau School Foundation and given out over $500,000 in the last twenty years.    This year, these grants are possible thanks to the Clyde F Schlueter Foundation, Conexus Association, UMR, Carpet City, and individual donors.  

Grant Applications for Spring Semester 2021 will be accepted starting February 1 through March 15.   Projects may request any amount up to $1,700.  Because of the COVID there is no specific deadline.  The Foundation hopes to announce winners in February and March.
