Have you proven yourself a scholar with a dedication to community service? If so, there’s a college scholarship you should know about.
World of Westchase is seeking applicants for its college scholarship program for students whose high school career reflects a commitment to both academics and community service. The WOW Scholars program is open to Westchase residents who are high school seniors (or home-schooled students) and who will attend their first year of college in 2014. Eligible residents must be children of home-owning members of the Westchase Community Association, Westchase’s homeowners association.
Since the inception of the program in 2006, the WOW Scholars program has awarded 46 scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to $2,000, to Westchase college-bound students.
Interested applicants must fill out an application, which can be downloaded by logging onto http://www.WestchaseWOW.com and clicking on the link for WOW Scholars, located at the very bottom of the homepage after WOW Info. The completed application and supporting materials must be postmarked by March 1, 2014.
Supporting materials for the application include certified copies of the student’s high school transcript; copies of official SAT and/or ACT score reports; two character reference letters, one of which must attest to community service; and a personal essay including information about the student’s community service, academic achievements, other achievements, personal goals, and any other information or factors, including need, that the student believes bears on why he or she should receive a scholarship.
