LWV-WA $1000 Scholarship

Scholarship was awarded to Jamestown High School senior, Rebecca Delbos, on Sunday, May 22.

LWV-WA members approved a 2021-2022 local League budget that included

Our first $1000 scholarship (administered through Williamsburg Community Foundation’s Scholarship Fund) to a student graduating from Jamestown, Lafayette or Warhill High School who plans to pursue studies in civics, government, politics, law, or a related area of study.

Preference will be given to a student who participates in Student Government and/or an organization like the League of Women Voters that encourages civic involvement.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, advocates on issues, and promotes civic education.

We anticipate awarding a scholarship annually on a rotating basis among the three high schools.

Scholarships are awarded, without discrimination, in consideration of these factors: curriculum difficulty, class rank, extra-curricular activities, application essay, and financial need. It is not necessary for a student to show financial need in order to be eligible for a WJCC Scholarship Fund scholarship.
