WILSON SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Scholarship Fund vs. Ed Foundation
The Wilson Scholarship Fund and the Wilson Education Foundation have often been confused. They serve 2 very different, but extremely worthwhile purposes. The Wilson Scholarship Fund
exists to help fund a significant scholarship for a graduating senior to assist them in furthering their collegiate education after leaving the halls of Wilson High School. The Wilson Education Foundation exists to help fund programs, staff, opportunities, and potentially facilities so that we can maintain the K-12 excellence that has become synonymous with the Wilson School District.
The Wilson Scholarship Fund (WSF)committee is made up of community members and retired teachers and they seek to not only greatly assist one senior each year, but to offer some funding to previous winners for each of their 3 consecutive collegiate years. WSF was created in 1992, and gives out its annual scholarship of up to $10,000 on the basis of need, essay, SAT scores, community service, and school activities. Students submit applications in April, finalists are interviewed in May, and the winner is announced at the graduation ceremony in June. Contributions to the fund are accepted at Wilson Scholarship Fund, 2601 Grandview Blvd, West Lawn, PA 19609.
