The Wasco Community Scholarship Association is now accepting applications for 2021 awards.
“The application is available on the Wasco High School website,” Wasco Community Scholarship Committee member Sharon Sharp said. “All Wasco High graduates attending a 2-year college, 4-year college or university, or trade school are encouraged to apply.”
Sharp added that the four-year university and college scholarship award is $1,500. The two-year college, trade or technical school scholarships will be $700 this year.
“Qualified recipients will be determined by the WCSA Board,” Sharp added. “Current high school recipients are usually announced at the Wasco High School Winner’s Circle, but it has yet to be determined this year how that will occur.”
Those students not currently in high school will be notified by mail.
For consideration, high school seniors and/or entering college freshmen must have at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average for the first seven semesters of high school. They must also be registered for a minimum of 12 units or full-time course load at an appropriate trade or technical school.
University or college students must have no less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average and carry a minimum of 12 units or equivalent full-time course load for the duration of the scholarship year to be considered for a scholarship. Graduate students are not eligible.
Applications must be submitted with all required documents in one envelope and postmarked by March 1.
“Students should confirm with their local post office to determine procedure to ensure a ‘dated postmark’ is added,” Sharp advised.
