Common Scholarship Application

The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation (WSF) will consider applications for its need-based scholarships from applicants that meet the following criteria: 

  • Applicants must intend to pursue either an undergraduate degree or a post-high school technical certification program.  WSF does not award graduate school scholarships.


  • 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.

  • Applicants must have applied for financial aid directly from the college or university they plan to attend, and WSF will only review an application after receiving a copy of the financial aid award letter provided by the educational institution.

  • Applicants must complete a CSS Financial Aid Profile, and select code #0564 for WSF to be a recipient of that information.

  • Applicants must provide the first two pages of parental tax returns for the most recent tax year.

  • Applicants must provide a copy of their school transcript, and must maintain a cumulative 2.0 grade point average each year they apply for a scholarship from WSF.


The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation (WSF) also coordinates the scholarships for multiple community organizations.  If the applicant eligibility criteria for those community organization scholarships differs from what is listed above or requires supplemental information, it will be noted within this application.
