RHINELANDER - Paying for college can be difficult.
The Nicolet College Foundation wants to help students earn the degree they're working for.
But now, the foundation is using a different way to connect students to scholarships.
The foundation will now only accept scholarship applications online.
The online process can help students find more scholarships to apply for.
"We have so many more. Literally scholarship opportunities numbering in the hundreds for students. For a small community college, I think that's something to brag about," said Heather Schallock, Executive Director of the Nicolet College Foundation.
The foundation has different types of scholarships available for all types of students.
But not all students take advantage of scholarships.
"It's human nature to assume that doesn't apply to me, I'll never get it, I'm not good enough, whatever label you want to put on it. I think it's easy to assume that's for somebody else and my message is these can be for you," said Schallock.
The scholarships come from donors that have personal ties to Nicolet.
The deadline to apply for scholarships is March 7th.
MERRILL - Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he didn't want to spend too much time at the Republican National Convention last week because he wanted to get back to campaigning in his home state.
The senator from Oshkosh stopped at the Lincoln County Fair on Saturday.
He faces a tight races against former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis).
Johnson gave a speech on Tuesday in Cleveland about national security, as he is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security.
He seems pleased with the Republican presidential ticket.
"I think it's really complimentary to the skills Donald Trump brings to the table," Johnson said. "You got Donald Trump with the private sector experience. You got Mike Pence with a real record accomplishment both in the House and as the governor of Indiana. I think it's a pretty good pairing."
He said he wouldn't pay too much attention to the speeches at the Democratic National Convention this week.
"They've got their ticket, we've got our ticket," Johnson said. "They'll make a bunch of promises they can't deliver on. And what we're going to focus on is economic growth, strengthen our economy so we can strengthen our military, so we can defeat ISIS and secure our borders."
