WARREN, NJ - Each year the Watchung Hills PTO and local organizations make scholarships available to seniors. The application process begins in March, and scholarships are awarded at the Senior Awards Night ceremony in June.
A list of organizations which sponsored scholarships available to the Class of 2014 can be found at http://Www.whrhs.org
Award amounts and criteria are approximate and vary from year to year. Seniors are asked to review the list and decide upon which scholarships are appropriate for them.
Most of the sponsors award scholarships are based upon financial need. For the purpose of selection, the sponsors require that each applicant has applied for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA determines an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the amount of money the family is expected to contribute toward college expenses. This figure must be indicated on the application.
This is the only opportunity available to apply for the PTO/local scholarships. NO applications will be accepted after May 2, 2014.
Additonally, Memorial scholarship opportunities, most with a May 5 deadline, are available for the graduating class of 2014, including:
Scott W Anderson Scholarship
Bob Beckert Scholarship
Anthony Bottoni Scholarship
Joseph Heath Scholarship
John Herdman Scholarship
Aaron Karol Scholarship
Gerald M. Mobus Scholarship
Jason Oh Scholarship
Brian Reardon Scholarship
James J. Straine Jr. Scholarship
Watchung Hills Soccer Association Scholarship
