Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I'm eligible for a scholarship?
applicants must be a Woodbury resident * planning to attend an
accredited, post secondary course of study. Scholarships are awarded
based on a combination of scholarship, school activities, community
service and financial need. Most awards are a combination of these
elements in varying proportions. Additionally, there are
scholarships available through named endowments and grants that may
have additional criteria (see Scholarship List). Currently,
scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors and prior
recipients entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in college
and who have maintained a demonstrated 3.0 GPA.
How do I apply for a scholarship?
Applications must be submitted by April 1st of each year for awards made in June. Application instructions are included on the application form. The form may be downloaded from this site or are available in the guidance office at Nonnewaug High School.
How are award recipients determined?
A selection committee comprised of Woodbury Scholarship Fund trustees and other community volunteers reviews the applications. Applicants are evaluated based on the content of the application and, in some cases, an interview.
Will my application be kept confidential?
Yes. Only selection committee members see applications. The required financial piece, page one of the Student Aid Report (SAR), is seen only by the selection committee chairperson.
