Class of 2023,
The Wyandotte Public Schools Scholarship Foundation has a long standing tradition of offering scholarship opportunities to our Seniors. The Foundation was established in 1989 as a non-profit organization and has awarded over $1,567,265 in financial assistance to Roosevelt students since its beginning. The Foundation's goal is to encourage Roosevelt High School graduates to seek a better life through continuing education. This year, the Foundation is offering more than 70 scholarships totaling over $108,000! Scholarships can be used for trade/tech schools, community college or a 4-year university.
Applying for scholarships is easy. Simply follow these steps:
1. Review the attached WPS Scholarship Foundation Prospectus document. This will help determine for which scholarships you are eligible to apply.
2. Compose a Personal Goal Summary essay (not to exceed one typed page, double spaced). Specific scholarships may require an additional essay. Please include your name at the top of the essay and title your essay, “Personal Goal Summary”. If you are writing an essay for a specific scholarship, make sure you title your essay with the name of the scholarship. You will upload your essay(s) to your application.
3. Obtain two recommendation letters (high school instructor, coach, employer, etc.). Unless specified in the scholarship prospectus, the same two recommendations can be used for all scholarships. If you are asking a teacher for a recommendation, please give them as much notice as possible. I have provided them with a form to use and they will submit it for you. Easy!
