Can homeschool students apply?
As long as you are a high school senior and your high school homeschool is registered in Watauga, Ashe or Wilkes county, you are eligible for the WAW Scholarship.
When will winners be notified?
The WAW board will meet between mid-March and mid-April to choose the current year’s recipients and review the renewal applications. Following this meeting, all applicants are notified by mail.
What is expected of me if I receive the scholarship?
First and foremost, the WAW Scholarship board expects all of its recipients to make a positive impact in their community. A 2.5 GPA is expected.
Communication after receiving a scholarship
Periodically, the board will notify you of a need: a testimony concerning the scholarship for a publication, future plans, upcoming golf tournament, etc. The board appreciates greatly quick responses from recipients and participation in WAW Scholarship events when possible.
