Woman’s Club Offering Scholarships to High School Seniors

The Woman's Club of Williamsburg-GFWC is offering $2000 scholarships to one high school senior at each local high school (Bruton, Jamestown, Lafayette, and Warhill High Schools) who is planning to attend an accredited four-year college or university. Information on the scholarship requirements is available in the guidance departments of each high school. Criteria for the award will include academic standing, leadership ability and extracurricular activities. Applicants will need two letters of recommendation from members of their high school staff (counselor or teacher) and must compose a 200 to 300 word essay explaining "What This Scholarship Means to Me." The applicant also needs to provide a copy of an acceptance letter from an accredited university or college. Applications are due to high school guidance departments by April 27.
