The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC) is now accepting scholarship applications for the 2019 – 2020 academic year through February 1, 2019.
Last year the Club awarded $70,000 in scholarships to 24 Wellesley students. Scholarships were given to graduating high school seniors and undergraduate college students in amounts ranging from $1,000 – $4,000.
Applications are evaluated based on demonstrated financial need, academic achievement, and involvement in community service. Applicants must be high school seniors graduating from Wellesley High School; Wellesley residents graduating from high school in or outside of Wellesley; or Wellesley residents currently attending undergraduate institutions on a full-time basis.
In addition to scholarships, the WHJWC has two one-time named awards:
· The Patricia C. Doiron Memorial Scholarship recognizes a graduating high school senior who has shown a commitment to early childhood education through participation in the Child Lab program at Wellesley High School, established in memory of Mrs. Doiron, a former Club member.
· The Suzanne Stevens Scholarship recognizes a high school senior (or current college student) who has demonstrated academic strength and a commitment to community service despite adversity or hardship, named in honor of Mrs. Stevens, a former Club president.
