Returning Applicant Application

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

  • Applicants must be pursuing 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 are attending, 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.

We value the privacy of your personal and financial information.  Until an award is made, no applicant information is shared beyond the WSF Scholarship Committee (5 people) and the WSF administrator.  No financial information including information uploaded in your CSS, tax returns or financial aid letters will be shared beyond the scholarship committee and WSF administrator at any time.  Information is only shared within this group of six on a need to know basis.  Award amounts will also be kept confidential, although will be shared with the WSF treasurer so that award checks can be written. Scholarship files are shredded after the student’s college graduation.
