Our Impact

Since 1951, The Wellesley Scholarship Foundation has provided financial assistance to college-bound students from our community through our annual scholarships.

We also extend our appreciation for the generosity of our named award sponsors and community partners, who have made significant contributions to our scholarship funds.

While we remain proud of our positive impact, our scholarships currently only provide for 33% of the demonstrated need from our community. 67% of financial need remains unmet. One day, we hope to be able to fully fund the financial need of our college-bound students.
