The purpose of the Kohl Teacher Fellowship program is to recognize and support teaching excellence and innovation. The Herb Kohl Education Foundation’s goals are to support teachers in pursuit of their unrealized goals for their classrooms or professional development. The 100 Kohl teachers and the 100 schools of those teachers will each receive $1,000 grants from the Kohl Teacher Fellowship program and will be recognized at a spring banquet.
The purpose of the Kohl Excellence Scholarship program is to recognize student leadership, citizenship, school and community involvement, and academic achievement. It is the goal of the Foundation to encourage Wisconsin youth to pursue post-secondary education in a public or nonpublic university, college, or vocational/technical college. The Foundation awards $1,000 scholarships to 100 Wisconsin high school graduates each year.
