All scholarship applications must be turned in electronically no later than 2:45PM on Monday April 15th.  Late applications will not be accepted.


Applications will be evaluated across five areas according to any additional criteria set forth with a particular scholarship.  The five areas of review include: academic performance, school-community involvement, need, aspirations, and overall persuasiveness. 

Academic performance will be evaluated according to a student's cumulative high school Grade Point Average taken at the end of the first semester of the high school senior's senior year.  This information will be provided by the Westville High School guidance department and is a required component of the application process.

For the four extended essay responses it is suggested to type in a word processing program (like Microsoft Word or Google Docs), save, and then copy and paste into the extended essay response tab.  Extended responses should be limited to a range of 500-750 words.
