At WPHS, national, state and county scholarships are received and disseminated from the guidance office. Applications are filed in the office and a scholarship bulletin is available to all students. The bulletin is updated weekly. Seniors are strongly encouraged to visit the guidance office to receive the most updated bulletin or click on the link below. Seniors should consider applying for any scholarship for which they meet the criteria.
In March, information regarding local scholarships becomes available for seniors. Students receive an application" from the guidance office on or around March 15th. This application is then completed by the deadline and returned to the guidance office. The scholarship committees meet in April to determine recipients. Scholarships are awarded at the Senior Scholarship Awards Program in June.
Please note: Several local scholarships are sent to the donor for recipient selection and require separate applications. This is clearly noted in the application that each senior receives from guidance.
Deadlines are important and must be strictly adhered to.
Any questions should be directed to the Guidance Department.
A running list of national, state and county scholarships will appear here throughout the year. Seniors are encouraged to apply for all that they qualify for.
