Wellesley Scholarship Foundation highlights nearly half a million dollars in awards

The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation earlier this month announced it will award $300K in need-based scholarships, and administer another $174K in community awards, to 102 recipients for the upcoming academic year. First-time scholarships were offered by the Wellesley Turkey Trot Foundation and Friends of Wellesley METCO.

This year’s awards total represents a 17% increase in funds over last year’s, according to the foundation. Students were recognized at an event at Wellesley Middle School on June 6 for their academic and extra-curricular achievements, and the promise for what lies ahead.
