Local and national scholarships available for WHS students
WHS students have access to multiple scholarships at the local and national level during their senior year and do not have to stray too far to find out how to apply for them.
WHS guidance counselor Julianna Hamad said that filling out and researching scholarships should be treated like a separate class and that they should be taken seriously with a lot of time devoted to them
Every year, the Wayne County Community Foundation releases a booklet that informs students about local scholarships that are available. WHS guidance counselor Tyler Egli said that every senior should have received that booklet in the mail, and if they have not gotten a book, they should let the guidance office know.
Along with the booklet, the WCCF also has a website that lists all of the scholarships and keeps them up to date.
Another way to see what scholarships are available is to log into Naviance. Every student has access to this as well.
“We encourage all seniors to apply for any scholarship opportunities,” Egli said.
Fastweb.com is also a way to check for scholarships at all times.
