The Waltmar Fondation is proud to be able to continue the Schmid family’s long history of giving students an opportunity to succeed. His attitude and beliefs in achieving the very best are attested to in the criteria of high academic achievement, and community volunteer and leadership services work. Based on these criteria, the Waltmar Foundation provides funds for incoming high school graduates and continuing college students allocated each year by the Fullerton College Foundation Scholarship Committee.
