The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 school year. The deadline is February 1, 2015.
WSF provides college scholarships, some based on financial need and two based on academic merit, to residents of Wellesley who attend undergraduate programs. A four-member sub-committee of Trustees oversees the annual review and selection of scholarship recipients. All financial information is held in strict confidence and is viewed only by this four-member committee.
In 2014, WSF awarded $248,250 in need-based awards to 78 students. These scholarships are funded by donations to WSF and the foundation’s investment income. In addition, each year WSF awards new merit scholarships to one female and one male graduating high school senior in recognition of outstanding achievement and citizenship.
Scholarships may range in size from $500 to $10,000 annually.
