The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation is now accepting applications for scholarship funding for the 2021-2022 academic year. The application deadline is March 1, 2021.
In order to be eligible to apply, the Foundation requires that applicants are a graduating senior or past graduate of Wellesley High School, or a resident of the Town of Wellesley. It only considers applications from students who intend to pursue either an undergraduate degree or a post-high school technical certification program. The Foundation does not award graduate school scholarships.
Need-Based Scholarships: Wellesley Scholarship Foundation awards numerous financial awards to qualified candidates to assist with their unmet financial need. In 2020, WSF awarded $316,000 in need-based awards.
Merit Scholarships: The Foundation awards privately endowed merit scholarships to two high school seniors each year who are Wellesley residents in recognition of their outstanding scholastic achievement and citizenship.
