The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation (WSF) will soon be accepting applications for the scholarships which will be given for the college year 2020-2021. In order to be eligible to apply, applicants must be residents of Wellesley who are graduates of either a public or private high school, or non-residents of Wellesley who are graduates of Wellesley High School. WSF only considers applications from students who intend to pursue either an undergraduate degree or a post-high school technical certification program. WSF does not award graduate school scholarships.
Students may apply for need-based scholarships at any point before the February of their senior year of high school and the February before their senior year of college. If demonstrated financial need exists, students are eligible to receive multi-year awards. However, they must reapply annually and must also maintain a cumulative 2.0 grade point average each year they apply for a scholarship.
Only high school seniors may apply for our two merit-based awards, which are given annually to one male and one female graduating student. Competition for these scholarships is keen, and successful applicants have excellent academic records and evidence of strong extracurricular involvement. These awards are renewable annually assuming acceptable academic performance and continued residency in Wellesley.
